MONDAY MOCHA WITH MONIQUE BOWLEY

I know it feels like a long time between Mocha’s. Now that Wednesday’s aren’t returning until July, our catch up time is down to once a week. It sucks but given the fact that I ask you all to invest in yourselves and listen to your inner child, play time and balance is a part of that so I must practice what I preach. At least that means we get Monday’s together right?

Now, before you freak out when you listen to this podcast and say, “I’ve heard this voice before.” Other than my dulcet tones, my guest for this week, Australia’s Queen of Podcasts herself – Monique Bowley, frequents the airwaves, currently on the Mamamia Podcast Network. Her work is award winning and her witty, quick whips and natural flair for conversation is apparent. What I loved about this particular podcast is that I got to see a deeper side of Monique, even when she told me she “Mutes it when the plop happens.”  What I loved learning about her was that she is engineered from a place of gratitude; which comes doing what she does….and having a pair legs. Much wisdom, laughter and Monday Motivation in this one, my friends.

“I go to mass every Sunday. There is no where in life anymore that tells you not to be a dickhead, as an adult. The one hour on Sunday morning, tells me to be a better person.”

MONDAY MOCHA WITH SILKE BADER

This Monday Mocha is a little closer to home. Literally. When I was in my early to late teens and growing in self awareness and learning about myself, it wasn’t just Queer As Folk that shone some light on the parts of me that I darkened. I used to hide underneath the covers reading LGBT magazines and newspapers. LOTL was one of those publications – headed up by Silke Bader – ranked the eight most powerful lesbian in the world by CLEO. A powerhouse publisher, event planner and equality advocate here in Australia, it’s an honour to have a mocha with yet another person who’s indirectly had some influence in shaping who I was today.

“When friendships are no longer give and take, when it’s heading only in one direction, you realise who you can turn to for support, and who you can give support to.”
