#1613 Who would have thought?

 

This week, we’re telling stories of fear and trauma, but not the kind you would expect. Two tales about surprising connections that will make you think huh… who would have thought?

‘Holes’ by Beth Gibson

Picture lots of little holes. A handful of straws from above. Honeycomb. Petrified wood. Crumpets. Does the thought bother you?

If you find the image disturbing, you may belong to a group that calls themselves trypophobics. But is your unusual aversion… real?

‘They clap for me’ by Heidi Pett

Most people have traumatic memories of their high school drama productions. The embarrassment of an on stage kiss, or slapstick screw-up.

But at Miller Technology High School in Sydney’s West, the annual school play is actually part of their trauma counselling.

Music: ‘Tip top’ by Borneo
