Anecdotal

Interestng topics but too many personal stories for my liking. Am more interested in listening to experts in the field.

Life Matter 2/5/19 Dr Ella Dreyfus

The photography of pre-pubescent children topless is child pornography and if done for financial gain then is also both exploitation and the distribution of child pornography. In her series of images using children standing semi naked is all of these things. It can all be done in the name of art but it is time to call it what it is: child pornography. The ABC is helping to entrench the idea that it is ok to exploit children and in this case pre-pubscent male children and that is abhorent. That the interviewer doesn't even question this as art shows the abyss that the ABC has fallen into. It should never be ok to photograph pre-pubescent children. These children were to young to consent and in the photographers own words they had to wait quietly until they turned 18 when consent could be giving and this alone indicates the stalking of a pediphile. It is not ok to exploit children even in the name of art. This exhibition at the Head On Photo Festival should be removed immediately. Let children be children free of predators like Dr Ella Dreyfus.

Life Matters

It have persisted since the changed format and conceptually, the subject area appeals. However I fail to engage with the "lead" presenter. She struggles to be conversational and lacks a personal warmth. I feel "talked at" rather than "talked to". I simply change channels between 10 & 11am these days and thought it was only fair to tell you since I am a devoted RN listener.

Life Matters

In general this podcast is pretty great to provoke thought in many aspects of life and to have a wider perspective on life. However, I often feel the shows are a bit rushed and some of the dialogue feels forceful, which is unfortunate. If any technology-heavy topic comes up though, feel free to skip it, since I've found the hosts to be very lacking in understanding and trying to convey those kinds of topics properly. Overall, it's worth my time to peruse the feed and download a few shows every once in a while.

Life Matters

Natasha Mitchell is such an intelligent, insightful lady.. We are indeed lucky to have her host Life Matters every day now..though I really miss her hosting of All In The Mind, and I miss Richard Aedy as he was great too

wonderful listening

This is one of the best programmes on Radio National. Richard Aedy is a warm, funny, intelligent and articulate host. Tremendous listening and I particularly enjoy the Friday Talk Back. Richard Aedy is a worthy successor to the wonderful Julie McCrossin. Richard, I will be so sorry when you too decide to move on.

Life Matters

Tell your friends about this ABC Radio National show - it's a well kept secret. It's intelligent, informative and very entertaining. Richard Aedy is sharp and witty and has a great manner with his guests. He's a really sensitive interviewer and the show gets some great guests. It's just the right length for my daily walk.

Life does matter

This podcat is categorized "kids & family" and I found this misleading. I expected to hear about raising children, parenting issues, etc. But it is so much more and better. It's really about what matters in life through convesations. I love this show.

Thought-provoking and thoughtful

The issues covered in this podcast are relevant to all of us, even outside of Australia, and coverage is thorough. The host creates a real community and treats subjects with intellect and compassion. I wish we had a similar program in the U.S.

Awesome - A must listen for every Australian

This is a great podcast. For someone who does not get the chance to listen to day time radio this podcast keeps me up to date with the latest political happenings in Australia and the focus on Education is great. Love this podcast and highly recommend it to anyone who cares to know a little bit more about being a worthy member of society!

life matters

Life Matters is a fantastic program, keeping me up to date with what people and organisations in Australian communities are doing. From topics such as mental health and education, to travel, the federal budget and world aid, there is always something going on and i appreciate that I can be an informed citizen through listening to this program.
