Murray Cook

For 20 years Murray graced Australian televisions as the Red Wiggle. He played everywhere from regional NSW to New York’s Maddison Square Garden and became a much loved part of millions of childhoods. Since wrapping up with The Wiggles, he’s been busy playing with the DZ Deathrays, recording in the US with his band The Soul Movers and advocating for Australian music.

Hazem Shammas

Hazem Shammas last year won a Logie for his role in TV show Safe Harbour, a drama which follows the story of five Australians who set out on a sailing holiday and encounter an overcrowded fishing boat of desperate asylum seekers. But it was a long trip to the podium one that goes right back to his Palestinian parents’ migration from a small village in northern Israel in the 1970s to an insurmountable challenge of being typecast as either a drug dealer or criminal on Australian screens.

Michael Mohammed Ahmad

Michael Mohammed Ahmad came of age as a young Muslim man in Western Sydney in the notoriously violent world of Punchbowl Boys High.

Emelda Davis

Emelda’s grandfather was kidnapped on a beach in Vanuatu and brought to Australia as a 12 year old boy to work in unspeakably harsh conditions on the sugar plantations of Northern Queensland. It’s a story that makes her a direct descendent of blackbirding - Australia’s forgotten slave trade. Her own life has been defined by identity, community and a healthy dose of black power. Emelda Davis is the head of Australia’s South Sea Islanders - Port Jackson, the principal body advocating for the recognition of blackbirding and Australian South Sea Islander culture.

Ray Ahn

Today Joey chats with bass player Ray Ahn of Australia’s thumping 80s pub rock bands, controversially titled, The Hard-Ons. Ray acts as a chronicler of the wild Australian DIY scene of the 80s and 90s through his blog and, of course, his writing is full of stories about his own bands. In 2017 he released a book of his art titled, “The Art of Ray Ahn – What I Did During My School Holidays” and Ray will be hitting the road later this year with The Hard-Ons in support of their latest album, So I Could Have Them Destroyed.

Bri Lee

Bri Lee was a District Court Judge's Associate in Queensland where she was exposed to some of the worst rape cases in the country. It was dealing with these traumatic stories that spurred Bri to confront her own history of sexual abuse and take the man that assaulted her to court.

Her book is Eggshell Skull, its examination of the toll that our justice system takes on women and all survivors of abuse. Quickly become a leading advocate in this space.

Rick Morton

Rick Morton is a social affairs journalist and writer, but Rick’s own story is a social affairs scoop like no other. When Rick was little growing up in the extremely remote and dusty Qld outback a terrible accident was followed by the break-up of his family. His mum and siblings were driven out of the family home into a poverty they never quite managed to escape.

Producers: Bre Jones and Nicole De Palo

Dor Akech Achiek


As a young boy, Dor Akech Achiek spent 9 years in a refugee camp in Kenya, after escaping war-torn South Sudan.

He's recently represented Australia at the UNHCR and the Global Youth Refugee Youth Conference in Geneva.


Steve Bunbajee Hodder Watt

Steve Bunbajee Hodder Watt is a radio maker but you won’t hear him stuck in traffic in the city.

As the Senior News & Current Affairs presenter at Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association he broadcasts from Alice Springs into the desert, his audience hailing from some of the most remote parts of Australia, and some of that have been hit hardest by poor government policy.

He’s currently in Sydney for Audiocraft - it’s a podcast festival running from tomorrow until Sunday.

Mahmood Fazal

Mahmood Fazal was once the sergeant-of-arms of the Mongols, one of Australia’s largest outlaw motorcycle clubs. He was in an environment shrouded in addiction, violence and often death. Now this is the world and subculture he writes about for Vice Australia.
