  • "Warts and All" (Living with Art and Artist)

    This week, our intrepid Word Docs dig down into the relationship between writers and their words. Can you separate the fiction on the page from the reality of its wider context? Which matters more, the message of the author or the impact of the work? And what happens when your favourite creator turns out to be an appalling human? Join Amy T. Matthews, Sean Williams and a particularly hyper Alex Vickery-Howe as they unpack that thorny relationship between story and storyteller.

    Word Docs Podcast Recap

    Alex, Amy and Sean (aka Dr Alex Vickery-Howe, Dr Amy T Matthews and Dr Sean Williams)
    are professional writers who also lecture full-time at Flinders University, South Australia.
    They’ve joined forces to cover topics of interest to new writers in a lively, conversational
    style that frequently segues to areas far from where they started. If you’ve ever wondered
    what writers talk about beyond the lecture theatre or festival circuit, here’s your chance to
    find out.

  • Blind Insights: The Power of Words (Special guest Steve Davis)

    With speech and language dominating most of our communication, it is quite fun to ponder just how significant words can be in our lives. Steve Davis of radio and marketing fame, joins David, comms student and master wordsmith, and Tim, a loquacious student of English, to tangentially pontificate the efficacious lexicons available to specifically elicit desired outcomes in interpersonal relations. Or, in other words, three men have a prolonged chat about the wonders of speaking and writing. One may critique this description for being sesquipedalian (using for using long words unnecessarily), to which we retort by highlighting the irony of such a label.

  • Wayne Deakin: Overcoming the wilful ignorance in comedy

    When you start out in comedy, you're looking for stuff that is funny. When you get good, you find stuff you want to talk about, and make that funny. So says comedian Wayne Deakin, a 20 plus year veteran of stand-up comedy who has performed in London, New York, Las Vegas, Montreal, all over Australia, AND to Aussie troops in the Middle East.

    In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast episode straight shooter 'Deaks' shares his philosophy on taboo topics, discusses the wilful ignorance of audiences, and shares great advice for up and comers who prefer to perform more edgy topics.

    And if you enjoy this interview with comedian Wayne Deakin, you might be interested to learn that he's our guest comedy coach at the School of Hard Knock Knocks stand-up comedy course in Melbourne this September.
