Happy Place

Do you ever feel held back by shame or judgement? Not just from others but perhaps from yourself too? Do you default to self-deprecation? In this chat with Fearne, comedian, musician, and producer Tim Minchin talks about how he’s learnt to let himself appreciate his own talents. They also chat about their own parenting choices, knowing full well that their children’s characters will be shaped by them, and the importance of a diagnosis for neurodivergence. Plus, Tim has some interesting thoughts about why we shouldn’t necessarily be seeking happiness. Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical, which Tim wrote the original music and lyrics for, is in UK cinemas on the 25th of November. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Today on the podcast I have the Australian icon 'Tim Minchin.' Who is joining me to discuss series 2 of his brilliant TV series 'Upright' - which drops on the 15th of November on 'Binge' and 'Foxtel.'  The scripted drama follows our two beloved misfits played by 'Tim' and 'Milly Alcock.' Following on from the first series which saw them both thrown together by chance in the middle of the Australian desert, they re-team to track down 'Meg’s' Mum in 'Far North Queensland' and let me tell you chaos resurfaces. 'Upright' is a blend of humour and drama - which is executed beautifully. It is crafted by some of 'Australia’s' best scripted drama creatives. The first series won awards and I am sure this second series will do the same. We will talk about Tim’s creative process, whether he asked 'Milly Alcock' about her time filming 'House of the Dragon' and we will unpack the highs and lows of fame - which 'Tim' knows very well.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Spotlight on Principle of Charity with Tim Minchin

Principle of Charity

Why is it so important to understand other points of view? How do we escape our own bubbles of bias? And when should we stop listening and focus on winning? In this special episode, we shine a light on the ‘Principle of Charity’ itself. We look at what exactly it is and why it’s so important. We then go one layer deeper and ask when it might be problematic or unhelpful to use it. To do all of this, we have the fabulous Tim Minchin. Tim is a renowned musician, comedian, composer, actor and writer. He’s best known for his extraordinarily clever and memorable songs, as well as his work as composer and lyricist of two hit West End and Broadway musicals, Matilda and Groundhog Day, both of which won the Olivier Award for Best West End Musical and garnered Tony Award nominations.   Tim is passionate about the need to have more respectful conversations and is an advocate for science and reason. He created the poem, book and animation Storm that brilliantly dramatises the philosophy of science. Most importantly, he came up with the name for our podcast.  ~~ You can be part of the discussion @PofCharity on Twitter, @PrincipleofCharity on Facebook and @PrincipleofCharityPodcast on Instagram.
