The indie film recently picked up awards for Best Dramatic Feature at the Anatolia and Zoroaster film festivals and has been officially selected by the Arizona International Film Festival. It is being distributed by 1091 Media/ The Orchard.

As well as being the film’s world premiere, there’s a live Q&A on Zoom with the film’s director/lead actor Raffaello Degruttola and lead actress Emilie Sofie Johannesen. Both are incredible! Transference: A Bipolar Love Story is one of four films shortlisted in SRFF‘s Narrative Feature category that will stream online for 48 hours from June 26 (5pm NYT) to June 28 (5pm NYT).

 Transference: A Bipolar Love Story (2019) on IMDb

On today’s episode – I coin a new catchphrase from an interview with wellness entrepreneur Ifat Hyndes and try it out on a taxi driver. Mat Ricardo talks about the power of acceptance. I say something that is unacceptable in a lunchtime slot on the radio. (Whoops!)

On this week’s episode Mat Ricardo reminisces about the time he was starting out as a street performer and a member of the public walked onto his pitch and took a dump. Left to raise the tone (uh-oh…) Trollywood actor Dan Davies gives a moving account of his own experiences with internet trolls. Only he has another word for them… and he uses it a lot…

Brace yourselves for another “slightly strange” (yeah… thanks Noreen 🤣) episode of my Mental Ideas strand of RTHK‘s 123 Show! This week my guest is the inspirational Christina Yung! She banks. She cares for her Mum. She writes books and takes magical photographs of Hong Kong old shops. She’s in tears twice during the interview and has the most infectious raucous laugh I’ve ever had the pleasure of developing tinnitus from!

Bit of an emotional rollercoaster this week as we discuss dementia and the Hong Kong Protests among other topics. Obviously this was recorded way back in BC (Before Coronavirus), hence all the hugging. I’d be arrested (again) for all that Friends BS now.

On next week’s episode of Mental Ideas veterans Mat Ricardo and Dan Davies return and recount their most memorable experiences with internet trolls in Trolls Anonymous. Only Dan has another word for them… and he uses it a lot…

Virtual Reality dance-maker Eugenia Kim explains how her bipolar disorder has fueled her creativity and inspired her latest VR film! It’s called Lithium Hindsight 360. And yes, it IS better than Avatar

Virtually Eugenia broadcasted on RTHK Radio 3 May 21 and explores the much-hyped relationship between bipolar disorder and creativity. Is there any truth in it? Or is it just a dangerous delusion of grandeur?

I’m excited to be collaborating with the Hong Kong Writers Circle producing and presenting a brand new strand of podcasts exploring the timely theme of ‘Masking The City: Hong Kong in Allegory‘!

Writer Unblocked showcases original short stories, poetry and humor to unlock and unblock Hong Kong’s creative art and soul. While some lucky writers and artists have been feeling creatively inspired by the protests, lockdown and surreality of social distancing, others have been left feeling disoriented, emotionally locked and creatively blocked.

Join me, familiar and debut voices from the Hong Kong Writers Circle as we attempt to ease the ‘blockdown’. The series will be recorded Sept/Oct 2020 and tie in with the publication of the HKWC’s 2020 anthology in November! The first episode will be recorded Sept 14 and feature Chief Editor Nathan Lauer and HKWC Chair Chris Maden.

A deadly podcast about Death by Anxious Showman Mat Ricardo is poignantly paired with American actor Dan Davies presenting the weather forecast… in Wisconsin. It may be Spring, but Winter is Coming…

Death & The Frozen Tundra broadcasted live on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show May 14! Download the podcast via the links below! On next week’s Mental Ideas Podcast, I’m joined in the studio (not just on Skype!) by Virtual Reality Dance-maker Eugenia Kim, who’ll be explaining to me how her bipolar disorder has fueled her creativity. Virtually Eugenia broadcasts next Thursday (May 21) @ 2.30 HKT on RTHK Radio 3!

Meanwhile, Mat and Dan will be back on Mental Ideas in a couple of weeks time talking about internet trolls in Trolls Anonymous. Don’t miss it!!!

Hmmmmmmmm, slightly regret referring to this week’s episode of Mental Ideas as my “award-losing podcast” in the official RTHK blurb. In fairness, it hasn’t been entered for any awards, so even describing it as “award-losing” is a delusion of grandeur. 🤣 🤣 🤣

I’ve got a criminal record as long as your arm, but most of my heinous crimes were committed while I was in Nod. At least that’s what I told the popo…

Catch my cheeky one-hander The Criminal Sleepwalker on this week’s Mental Ideas Podcast live on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show in about ooh TWO HOURS today (May 7) @2.30 HKT!

On next week’s episode I am joined by the power of virtual technology by two lunchtime legends: showman Mat Ricardo and actor Dan Davies in a deadly episode, Death & The Frozen Tundra.

The Criminal Sleepwalker - Mental Ideas Podcast
Hahahaha!

Following a relatively smooth (considering the backdrop!) debut stint as a podcaster on RTHK Radio 3‘s fantabulous 123 Show, I am excited to have been invited to produce & present a brand new strand for the show!

Hong Kong Marriage Stories takes a refreshing, insightful and entertaining look at the institution of marriage and the complicated, often hilarious dynamics between two people. It may not be a fairytale (unless it’s the one where you kill an ogre with an axe and get pots of gold?) But it’s Love, Factually.

Whether you’re still in the honeymoon period or have been married for decades, whether your marriage is magic or tragic, whether you’re smugged out, bugged out or drugged out, whether social distancing has brought you closer together (ha!) or driven you to the brink of homicide, RTHK’s Miss Adventure wants your engaging and entertaining marriage stories!

Interested in taking part? Get in touch!!! You and your spouse can disagree on everything – except being interviewed by me once separately and once together. Throughout the series, listeners will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite marriage story (probably on the grounds of entertainment value, rather than durability). The winning couple will receive a ‘Hong Kong Marriage Story of The Year‘ trophy, a certificate signed by the Pope (TBA) and a romantic date night of our choosing!!!

Psychopathic actor and entrepreneur Philippe Joly attempts to explain why psychopaths make such great neighbors, CEOs and movie stars. But I’m laughing so much about fake noses, it’s almost impossible to hear him. He also has the GALL to bring up his experiences working with Jackie Chan. No, not the bipolar banker I interviewed in episode 2. The other one.

There was no Mental Ideas Podcast last Thursday as it was Buddha’s birthday. (Happy Birdy Buddy!) But it’s back as a strand of RTHK Radio 3‘s fantabulous 123 Show THIS THURSDAY (May 7) @2.30 HKT with an arresting episode, The Criminal Sleepwalker.
