Grainne goes to school in 1980s Dublin when it's all nuns and compulsory Irish Gaelic. Not a good place to be dyslexic, especially if you've never heard the word "dyslexia" let alone understand its meaning. Grainne's dream is to be zoologist and to get there she uproots to Australia. Her challenges follow her here, but a developing love of magpies and other native birds helps Grainne find her own voice and, eventually, the people who appreciate her unique read on the world.

Agafia Lykova - the woman who's lived alone in the wilderness for 70 years
When she was born, Agafia's father had become convinced that their family was being hunted by the Russian government, so he had packed up the whole family and escaped into the Siberian wilderness - hundreds of kilometres from any other humans. Agafia is now 76, the rest of her family has died, and she is still living - alone - in the tiny hut her father built back in the 1940s. She has only left her home a total of six times in her entire life, and if not for being discovered by chance in the 80s, nobody would ever even have known she was there.  If you want to see Agafia performing for the camera, start by watching these 2 videos:  VICE documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tt2AYafET68 RUSSIA TV documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFK3DJ7Kn6s&pbjreload=101 Read this stuff: Read this excellent article from Smithsonian magazine: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/for-40-years-this-russian-family-was-cut-off-from-all-human-contact-unaware-of-world-war-ii-7354256/ If you can track down a copy of Vasily Peskov’s book about the Lykov family, apparently it’s excellent: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1166194.Lost_in_the_Taiga Read about the influencer who put Agafia’s life at risk by flouting social distancing rules during the pandemic… https://igvofficial.com/updateworlds-loneliest-hermit-has-been-put-at-risk-of-covid-19-after-influencer-takes-a-trip-to-see-her/ And you can go to Google Maps and see exactly where she lives: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lykov+family+settlement/@51.4608556,88.4183531,15z/data=!3m1!4b1 RECCOS: Watch 'I Care A Lot' on Amazon Prime: https://www.primevideo.com/detail/0TIXYYBH7U617YC52G595LGU44/ref=atv_hm_hom_c_8pZiqd_2_2 Read the Forbes article about Britney's (lack of) wealth: https://www.forbes.com/sites/maddieberg/2021/02/17/britney-spears-net-worth-revealed--and-its-shockingly-low-compared-to-her-pop-peers/?sh=50a826f718ac See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

#160: Daft Punk, Will TV Confront COVID?, Obama & Springsteen
Two boomers have started a podcast, and we’re very interested in their home recording setup. Another duo have called it a day, and we reflect back on the soundtrack Daft Punk have given our lives. As big TV shows like Sex & the City, Succession, and Curb Your Enthusiasm go back into production, the question of COVID as a storyline is front of mind. Should TV reflect, or escape reality? And the reactions following “Framing Britney Spears” keep coming, as two women held under the spotlight as kids share their thoughts. Meanwhile Myf is filling the Succession hole with TV show Industry, while Zan is dreaming of beach escapes, reading Barbarian Days.   Show notes:   Slate on Obama & Springsteen’s podcast setup: https://slate.com/human-interest/2021/02/barack-obama-bruce-springsteen-podcast-setup.html Remembering the genius of Daft Punk: https://www.abc.net.au/doublej/music-reads/features/daft-punk-feature/13182412 Will TV confront COVID or avoid it?: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2021/feb/23/from-sex-and-the-city-to-succession-will-tv-confront-covid-or-ignore-it Tavi Gevinson: Britney Was Never In Control: https://www.thecut.com/2021/02/tavi-gevinson-britney-spears-was-never-in-control.html Industry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbM84z4XYgc&ab_channel=HBO Barbarian Days: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18693910-barbarian-days Email us: bangon.podcast@abc.net.au   Bang On is recorded on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation.

How Fat Shaming By Doctors Is Putting Women's Lives At Risk
Going to see your doctor should never be a bad experience, but for many women the reality is that instead of getting the medical treatment they need, everything is blamed on their weight. Weight bias or weight stigma - aka fat shaming - should not be part of any medical professional's mindset, but hundreds of women got in touch to tell us their own scarring experience inside the examination room. The Quicky investigates why old stereotypes about weight still persist, how a doctor should talk to their patient if they are genuinely concerned, and what to do if you're not happy about how you've been treated.

The Boys Who Don’t Brunch With Girls
Everyone is talking about high school boys, after the head prefect at Cranbrook Senior School stood in front of a full assembly and told his mates they need to change their attitudes to women. But on the show today, we discuss whether or not single-sex education plays a role. Plus, Australia is going back to work. Sydney’s CBD is apparently now back at 65% of its pre-COVID capacity. Melbourne is moving quickly towards a 75% plan. Brisbane’s been back for a while… and we’ve definitely forgotten some of the things that happen in an office. And, our best and worst of the week. THE END BITS  Read the full Cranbrook speach here. Click here for the episode of This Glorious Mess with Daddo's mum. Recommendations: Check out Louis Theroux's podcast here.
