Talking Thriving After and Destigmatising Cancer with Esther Xu
Esther is a gastric lymphoma survivor (or 'thriver' as she likes to be called), who has been cancer free for over three years. She is using her experiences to create video interviews with other thrivers to share cancer stories. Esther also plans on performing public speaking to Chinese and Chinese Australian communities to destigmatise the concept of cancer, which is still considered taboo in that country. We talk about the triggers which made her go to the specialist for a check up, her diagnosis and treatment, the stigma around cancer in China, and how she has made the most of her 'second life' after her treatment and successful remission (or 'reason for mission', also what she prefers to say). It was a pleasure talking to a fellow thriver like her. --- Want to say hello? Get in touch!

Keeping The Doors Open To Strangers With The 'Come From Away' Newfoundlanders
For the Season 2 finale I spoke with 4 people who were involved with the new hit musical to land in Melbourne, 'Come From Away'. This uplifting musical tells the story of the incredible real-life events in the wake of the September 11 tragedy. 38 planes carrying nearly 7,000 people from over 100 countries were redirected to Gander, Newfoundland, almost doubling the population of the remote Canadian town. You can buy tickets to the show here. Sue Frost is the founding member of Junkyard Dog Productions who has helped produce 'Come From Away' since it was on Broadway earlier this decade. Derm Flynn was the mayor of the nearby town of Appleton at the time. He hosted six passengers during 9/11 and was fully involved in the relief efforts that followed. Beulah Cooper was the Treasurer of the ladies' auxiliary for the Royal Canadian Legion in Gander. On 9/11, streams of people were welcomed into Cooper's home for showers. She took people shopping for clothes and helped make food. Bonnie Harris was the manager of the animal shelter in Gander and was the first to venture into the holds of the planes to assist those animals on board the planes (including two rare Bonobo apes). - Are you an everyday person who has an interesting passion, project, hobby, organisation or anything else going on?

Escaping To A Better Life While Overcoming Huge Odds With Peter Nguyen
Peter is a co worker of mine with a story that he has not told many people about, he is a refugee who fled Vietnam in the 1980s with his family as a young boy. Peter wanted to bring his story to the world as a form of closure, as well as being able to have something which he can expose to his young children when they are older so they can understand what he went through at such a young age. We spoke about how it took them three attempts to make it out of the country, how he was tortured after being captured after the second try, and what he remembers about his brutal journey to freedom. It's a heart wrenching story, and regardless of your opinion about refugees, Peter's story will shine a light on how difficult it is for a refugee to seek a new life in a safer country. ***Some of the content in this episode may distress some listeners. If you feel that you have been affected by what you have listened to, please contact your local crisis hotline*** After we finished recording, Peter told me about his younger brother named Nguyen Trieu Thien Quang who went missing during one of the trips.
