I put my foot in it AGAIN – this time in my monthly humor column for the South China Morning Post, published in the Short Reads section of Post Magazine last week! The column is now a regular goofy companion piece for my RTHK Radio 3 humor column Sharp Pains, which broadcasts on the 123 Show the last Tuesday of every month. This one aired on the radio as Foot In It…
The new series explores the impact of mental health on relationships in a humorously irreverent, offbeat, poignant & uplifting way. Stay tuned for news of S1’s release on other platforms and a sponsored TV spin-off! 🤞
I put my foot in it LIVE on RTHK Radio 3‘s fantabulous 123 Show in my first Sharp Pain of 2021! My latest humor column broadcasted Jan 26 @2.30pm HKT! Sharp Pains will be back in the Year of The Ox! Here’s hoping it will be a lot more lucky and a lot less plaguey than its Ratty predecessor!
Kung Hei Fat Choi!🐂
I normally pride myself on my ability to give at least a minute’s notice before a radio broadcast. But this one aired TEN WEEKS AGO, which is a dismal new record. This one’s called Flex & the City…
More pandemic black humor from the Hong Kong Government this week when we were advised to open all the windows (COVID-dispersing ventilation) and not to go outside (air pollution). But it’s not all doom and fumes! This means two new episodes of Sharp Pains have already aired!
My virtual awards date was Hobo-dog Kaye (RIP 😢 – though he did at least wait until the awards show was over to do it). My attire was my dressing gown. The time was 2am. I’d run out of wine 4 hours ago so I toasted The AIBs 2020 with a cup of FUEL high protein instant porridge. It was an intense two-part awards program presented with unwavering gravitas. The lightest moment was when the AIB uploaded a mugshot of my leering face dementedly side-eying the award. Even I was scared my photo might glitch to life and shatter the screen of my iPad in a spontaneous smash and grab!
Luckily, it was all over before I could get in one good swing of my axe! Sky News StoryCast and Tortoise Media‘s My Mother’s Murder was announced the Factual Podcast category winner. Congratulations to the Association for International Broadcasting on two excellent awards shows and all the worthy winners! It was a bewildering honor to have been nominated and one of the highlights of my year (2020: sooooooooo gooooooooooooood!)
Episode 1 of my new monthly humor column, Sharp Pains, broadcasted live on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show Sept 29, 2020 at its new regular time of 2.50pm HKT! For those who missed it, you can download it as a podcast by clicking any of the links below! The first episode was called ‘Ghost‘
The Association for International Broadcasting have just published their shortlist for the 2020 AIB Awards – and I am blown away my quirky Mental Ideas Podcast is among the nominees in the Factual Podcast category! 🙏 The winners will be announced at a virtual event, streamed live by Al Jazeera Nov 13 & Nov 16. Oh 2020: what a rollercoaster of highs and lows (mainly lows) you have been! If I hadn’t started the year with bipolar disorder, I’d almost certainly have developed it by now… 🤣🤣🤣
