#532 Bike Noir & Milk Bar

This week we’re bringing you stories from our archives about making the best of difficult situations. 

Bike Noir by Cherese Sonkkila 

Cherese Sonkkila was just an ordinary person until the day her bike got stolen. That’s when Chelsea Stone showed up; a hardboiled alter-ego who would stop at nothing until she solved the case. This is a true story infused with film noir fantasy.

Featuring: David Maney, Rosanna Dunlop, Oliver Coleman and Aaron Lam.

Producer: Cherese Sonkkila

Supervising Producers: Max Rowley and Mell Chun 

Milk Bar Dates by Ruth Melville 

Ruth takes us into the confessions booth at a catholic girls school in the 70s.

Ruth’s fiction and non-fiction writing has been published in Island, Tirra Lirra, Meanjin, the Big Issue and The Australian.

This story is from a previous All The Best Live!, a live storytelling event we put on with help from the City Of Sydney. The theme for the night was Secrets and Confessions.
