Hello! Here's a podcast with two different pieces for you. The first half is a short story about a girl and her first love. The second half is a recording taken from "The Shelf" from August last year. It is very much the end of the night and one of the comedians has found it difficult to move from the back of the stage. Warning: may contain traces of drunk comedians looking for an out. Enjoy!
It is all in the title.
Australian Nick Hempton has lived in New York for over ten years plying his trade as an alto and tenor saxophonist in the "Nick Hempton Band". Having performed with some of the jazz greats I had this opportunity to talk to Nick about his career while he was back in Sydney over the Christmas Break. Head to nickhemptonband.com to discover more of his great, swinging music.

Author Alex Hammond returns to the podcast to talk about his new book and the second Will Harris novel "The Unbroken Line". A crime thriller that delves into Melbourne's murky underbelly, this is the type of book that is hard to put down and it was great having Alex discuss not only this but his upcoming plans.
Ben Ellwood isn't just one of my favourite guests but one the most thoughtful comedians working on the scene. This conversation was recorded in Sydney when I was escaping the Melbourne winter.
Susie Youssef is one of the rising stars of the Australian comedy scene and already has a plethora of credits to her name. This interview was conducted while I was last in Sydney performing at the Comedy Store.
