About Us

Unbreakable Links is a creative collaboration between two friends, Amy Somers and Kate Erlenbusch. The name itself comes from a line in Mary Oliver’s essay collection Upstream: “I would say that there exist a thousand unbreakable links between each of us and everything else, and that our dignity and our chances are one.” Through the podcast we engage in conversations about what it means to live a connected life; how seemingly disparate ideas are interconnected; how ideologies either support or undermine our sense of connection – to each other and the earth. We examine the ways in which we are falsely divided and what it will take to remember our interdependence.

Sacred Women’s Wisdom - Unbreakable Links

Spirituality in Secular Australia - Unbreakable Links

In this month’s episode we talk with public academic David Tacey, one of our most eminent thinkers on spirituality in Australia. David Tacey has authored several books including The Spirituality Revolution, Re-enchantment and Edge of the Sacred:Jung, Psyche, Earth. Though his first university course on ‘Spirituality in Australia’ was hugely popular, he faced staunch opposition from the academy. Our conversation meanders through diverse territory from the Aboriginal gift, to our treatment of asylum seekers to the call for an ecological conversion. A thread running throughout is the recognition that we all have a deep need for belonging to place.

Australian Women’s Day Special - Unbreakable Links

In this special Australian Women’s Day episode we were invited by the founders of AWD campaign to contribute a conversation about or between women in Australia. The episode is part educative, part reflective and we believe in bringing to light an issues that is often stigmatised, secretive and subtly pervasive. In the first part we share the facts and stats about family violence within Australia and how this fits within the campaign. The second part of our conversation contributes our philosophical ‘unbreakable links’ to family violence spanning language, theology, relationships, myths and early colonial history.
