Mistakes Were Made Fri 9 Sep, 6.30pm
To err is human, proverbial wisdom tells us. But fessing up to our blunders is another matter altogether. Hear from a line-up of writers, thinkers and comedians as they bravely divulge the defining mistakes they’ve made in their personal and professional lives. From the silly to shocking, humbling to hilarious, listen to just how badly they got it wrong and what they learned along the way. Featuring one of Australia’s most trusted doctors, Norman Swan, acclaimed singer-songwriter Sally Seltmann, award-winning comedian and broadcaster Sami Shah, comedy writer and author Sinéad Stubbins, and essayist and debut author Eda Gunaydin, in conversation with Bridget Hustwaite.
