Cataclysm: Episode Fourteen

May 3, 2015

#14 HOME

Is home a physical place or a state of mind? Can we carry the feeling of home from one place to another? How do you build a new sense of belonging when you’ve left home behind?
This episode we reflect on how the notion of home fits in to a bustling, busy world.

Monica and Evan lovingly prepare a home-cooked meal for each other for datenight while Rachael follows volunteers cooking meals to combat loneliness. Pavement philosopher Jess gets deep and meaningful asking the public what and where home is for them.

Politics on the Couch takes us to the British election campaign as Harriet and Brendan muse over #milifandom. Jennifer asks how religious students find their sense of home at RMIT. Jade reviews the new reflective drama ‘The Clouds of Sils Maria’ and Alex profiles up and coming Melbourne band T.V.

We wrap up the episode with Cataclysm’s regular bookclub as Victoria Knauf and Lauren Muscat join Alicia Barker to discuss the new release ‘Springtime: A Ghost story’ by Michelle De Kretser.

Presented by Monica Ireland, Evan Young, Ashleigh McMillan and Rachael Dexter.
