Our first episode back after lockdown! We recorded this a few weeks ago, when we could first see each other again. What started off as a discussion about the Peregrine Falcons of Melbourne, turned into something a lot deeper. Listen in as Nan gets real about death and dying and what she thinks is the secret behind a long, happy life.

We hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing holiday season however you chose to celebrate.

See you in 2021!

We took a little break from recording as the next story Nan has to share is quite long. So long in fact, we are going to split it over two episodes. This is a little teaser to introduce you to Mio, Nan's husband.

Rank #6: The Great Depression

Podcast cover
Read more
Human nature is an extraordinary thing and what you will hear over the next hour is proof of that. This is quite a heavy episode as Bernie recalls what it was like to be a child growing up in the depression. The unimaginable horrors that came with having no money and the treatment received from others. Yet amongst it all was the unwavering love within her family. This won't leave you with a warm feeling but it may leave you a renewed sense of gratitude for what you do have and the times in which we live. I know it certainly did that for me. Sitting beside my Nan as she relived her memories was quite hard and it certainly gave me a huge insight into the woman she became.

Rank #7: Introducing Nan

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome to Shenanigans. 
In our first ever podcast, you will be introduced to Bernie, my 90 year old Nan. 45 minutes is not enough time to capture all of the stories she has to share, so this is merely a starting point. For many years I have wanted to document our family history, from the point of view of my grandmother. She loves a chat and is very curious about the lives of others, so what better platform than a podcast.
Join us as we travel across Melbourne and through time, reliving significant events in Bernie's life.
