Cataclysm: The Catalyst Podcast

Cataclysm: Episode Sixteen

August 2, 2015


No, not the acid rock band from the 1960's. We're talking metaphoric doors: moments in life when things changed tracks, a new opportunity opened up or when you said goodbye a to a time and place forever.

Wisened hosts Brendan and Matilda do a tour of 'I'm-too-old-for-this-place' pubs for their nostalgic datenight. Hugo Hodge brings listeners the modern day sounds and stories of the once devastated Hiroshima in recent trip to Japan. Back home in Melbourne, Pavement Philosopher Jess Davis asks the public about the moment when their life changed forever.

Our favourite student hacks Harriet and Brendan give a wrap up of the Bernadi v. Wong same-sex marriage debate for Politics on the Couch.
In keeping with our existential theme resident film 
aficionado Jade brings us the classic 'Being John Malkovich' while Victoria chats radical career changes with her accountant-turned-hairdresser.

Cataclysm’s regular bookclub finishes up the episode is style. Alicia is joined by Evan Young, Lauren Muscat and Victoria Knauf  who sink their  teeth into Miranda July's new release 'The First Bad Man'.

Presented by Matilda Edwards, Brendan Wrigley, Ashleigh McMillan and Rachael Dexter.
