For many Years, David Iliffe from Breakfast on ABC southern Qld has been a mate, and confidant, on a little Big issue that connects us both.  Not our love of radio, our families or a nice craft ale, but our commitment to to the plight of parents who have children on the autistic spectrum. Like many syndromes, Autism in all its forms manifests as, at times, odd behaviors, and issues with normal socialisation.  My kin, and Davids's share similar traits. This time of year he interviews specialists to highlight autism awareness in what is Autism Month - April. Today I turn the mic on him, and dive deep in the the experience of a Dad. For more info and credible CPD please look to https://aeiou.org.au/ And a personal thank you for taking to time to listen to this, at times, heartfelt conversation. Rob.

Ectopics : July 31 - Covid Hell in Melbourne

In the last few days, Melbourne ED RN Tanya Wallace made waves in the social media world with a post of herself after doffing her Covid PPE.  Exhausted, and frustrated with the community lack of adherence to social restrictions, Tanya made an impassioned plea for people to wear masks and socially isolate.   It was shared by over 700 people in the first 12 hours, and no doubt echoed the frustration of nurses all around the country at complacency. In this episode of ECTopics, I chat to Tanya about her experience, and that post.
