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.

One type of podcast guest that’s proved easy to secure in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic is grounded airline cabin crew. Bipolar is a condition that’s often been associated with mad creative geniuses, like Van Gough, Beethoven, Mozart, Theresa May and Carrie Lam. But what if you work as a first class bathroom assistant for a living and don’t have a creative bone in your body? The Agitated Air Stewardess is a harrowing tale of triumph in the face of absurdity. Florence Wong ROCKS!!!

The Agitated Air Stewardess

Thanks Hong Kong Buzz for your plug of my Mental Ideas Podcast, plus recent film festival excitements for a film I co-produced with Contro Vento Films Transference: A Bipolar Love Story, which was supposed to have its world premiere at the New York Socially Relevant Film Festival in March, the film’s selections for the Arizona International Film Festival and Buenos Aires International Film Festival, mention of my 2019 NIFA Award and plans to travel to Wisconsin to catch up with the indomitable Dan Davies (an upcoming podcast guest) for NIFA 2020 in May. Which sounds a lot more exciting that it actually is. In reality, the podcast is the only item of news mentioned in the article that hasn’t (yet) been postponed.

Episode 1 of my Mental Ideas Podcast, a new weekly strand on the fantabulous Noreen Mir‘s 123 Show, aired April 2, 2020 on RTHK Radio 3!

Depression. It’s no laughing matter. Or is it? Why are so many of our best loved comedians depressed? I trance in and out exploring this tragi-hilarious topic with award-winning cartoonist, depressed humorist and best-selling author, the irrepressible Larry Feign: creator of the iconic Lily Wong comic strip published in the South China Morning Post. Larry was the first cartoonist to have a full-page spread in Time Magazine, worked in animation for Walt Disney Studios and is the international best-selling author of 15 comic books and children’s book series The Fart Brothers, which he sensibly writes under the pen name M.D. Whalen because he doesn’t want to be too closely associated with flatulence.

UPCOMING EPISODES:

APRIL 2The Depressed Comedian

Depression. It’s no laughing matter. Or is it? Why are so many of our best loved comedians depressed? I trance in and out exploring this tragi-hilarious topic with award-winning cartoonist (creator of the SCMP’s iconic Lily Wong strip and the first cartoonist to have a full-page spread in Time Magazine) depressed humorist (at least he seemed a bit disappointed by the end of the interview) and best-selling author Larry Feign!

APRIL 9A Bipolar Love Story

In a Mental Ideas Podcast exclusive, I am rewarded for all my bad work with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interview a living legend live on RTHK Radio 3! JACKIE CHAN is on the podcast!!! No, I am not making this up!!!! She works in banking and has bipolar disorder!!!!!! Oh. But she could kick THAT Jackie Chan into 2021!!! (Well, it can’t be any crapper than 2020.) Plus, who wants to interview THAT Jackie Chan anyway? Not since he’s been outed as a spy for the CCP. (Well, I wouldn’t have minded tbh.)

APRIL 16The Agitated Air Stewardess

One type of podcast guest that’s proved easy to secure in the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic is grounded airline cabin crew. Bipolar disorder is a condition that’s traditionally been associated with mad creative geniuses, like Van Gough, Beethoven, Mozart, Theresa May and Carrie Lam. But what if you work as a first class bathroom assistant for a living and don’t have a creative bone in your body? The Agitated Air Stewardess is a harrowing tale of triumph in the face of absurdity. And I know I’m not supposed to have favorites but Florence Wong ROCKS!!!

APRIL 23The Psychopathic Actor

Psychopathic actor and entrepreneur Philippe Joly attempts to explain to me why psychopaths make such great CEOs and movie stars. But since I usually meet Philippe at the studio to improvise sketches, the interview quickly deteriorates. 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.

APRIL 30 – PUBLIC HOLIDAY – NO SHOW!

MAY 7 – The Criminal Sleepwalker

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.

MAY 14  – Death & The Frozen Tundra

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…

MAY 21 – Virtually Eugenia

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

MAY 28 – The Depressed Banker

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. She’s Christina Yung: the Positive Depressive!

JUNE 4 – Trolls Anonymous

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) Dan Davies gets trollied in Wisconsin and gives a moving account of his own experiences with internet trolls. Only he has another word for them (and he uses it a lot).

JUNE 11 – The Unwellness Entrepreneur

I coin a new catchphrase from an interview with wellness entrepreneur Ifat Hyndes and test it out on a taxi driver. Mat Ricardo talks about the power of acceptance. Frankly, it’s unacceptable.

JUNE 18 – Money

I talk dirty. Great big wads of dirty money. You can’t use banknotes anywhere in Hong Kong since the first wave peaked. Too dirty. Toilet paper is our only currency now.

JUNE 25 – PUBLIC HOLIDAY – NO SHOW!

JULY 2 – Crazy

I’ll leave this one to your imagination…

MORE PODCASTS TO FOLLOW!

Time for me to wake up and smell the coffee! But that’s the problem with COVID 19: no smell and everything tastes like prison bars.

Lockdown your daughters! Lockdown your sons! Lockdown your spouses! Lockdown your helpers! Lockdown your pets! 

Miss Adventure has finally clambered oh-so-elegantly out of that strange parallel universe she’s been inhabiting for the past couple of months (ok, she may have written most of these in a fit of predictive psychosis way back in 2019, when tear gas, rubber bullets and fire bombs were all we had to worry about – happy days!) to bring you THESE hurriedly updated, probably dangerously accurate Lockdown Lowdown predictions for the month ahead in her latest column for Hong Kong Buzz!
