#1329 On the Road

Everyone likes adventure and the long roads of Australia, that stretch thousands of kilometres through changing landscapes, can offer the perfect place for adventure and discovery.

And whatever the reason you’re on the road; love, adventure, escape, you’re bound to make some pretty amazing discoveries in this big ‘ol country.

This episode we hear the story of a hitch-hiker, a journey-man from NZ, the magic of Alice Springs and the discovery of heritage and culture.

#1306 Fight Club Vol. 2

All the Best jumps back into the fray — and this time the fight takes place in hearts and minds, in beds and cancer wards. A share house turns into a battleground when an army of bed bugs invades, and two lovers face themselves and each other when multiple sclerosis and cancer enter their lives.

Battle of the Bugs 
In the inner-city Sydney suburb of Newtown, share houses are filled with second (and third, and fourth)-hand furniture of questionable origin. One of these pieces found its way into the home of Heidi Pett, like a Trojan horse. Inside, an army of microscopic beasts was waiting.

Produced by Heidi Pett.

Lovers and Fighters
Tessa and Patch are lovers, who fight. Between the everyday battles of love and life, they find themselves fighting multiple sclerosis and cancer- together.
