Kurt Fearnley's Tiny Island: Steve Mooney

EThe last Tiny Island Podcast I recorded while I was on the road working, was literally recorded while I was on "The Road". Steve Mooney has picked me up and drove me across QLD for the last 3 years.

Kurt Fearnley's Tiny Island: Dr Erika Chapman Burgess

EDr Erika Chapman Burgess has a great Australian story of success, after a childhood which was a little complex. At times it was hectic beyond imagination. Erika was one of five who were all born on the same day. As an Indigenous quintuplet growing up in Glen Innes life was a bit different. But Erika (and her siblings!) has shown there's nothing wrong with a bit of difference and how hard work and dedication can take you places where people least expected.

Kurt Fearnley's Tiny Island: John Marsden

EAs a kid, John Marsden would retreat into books as a way to escape a tough childhood. As a school teacher John was frustrated by the lack of reading and good stories available to his students so took matters into his own hands. The majority of his books are written for teenagers, including the popular Tomorrow series. The difference he has made to young Australians stretches beyond his writing though, having moved on from just being a teacher to founding two schools in Victoria.

Kurt Fearnley's Tiny Island: Mark Hughes

EDuring winter in Newcastle you would be hard pressed to walk down the street without seeing a Mark Hughes Foundation beanie on a Novocastrian head. The unofficial uniform is a product of the foundation and its founder who played rugby league for Newcastle, NSW and in the English Super League. In 2013 Mark Hughes had an operation to remove an avocado sized tumour from his brain and went through rounds of treatment to try and beat a condition which arrived with few warning signs.

Kurt Fearnley's Tiny Island: Craig Johnston

EIf Craig Johnston's soccer career happens in today's digital age there wouldn't be a kid in Australia who didn't know his name and have the Liverpool 7 on their back. Instead he's a bit of an enigma on our shores but has one hell of a story of making it to the big time against all odds, falling down over and over and dragging himself back up. It was wonderful to have a yarn with Craig in Newcastle and learn a bit more about his highs and lows, and what keeps him coming back for more.

Kurt Fearnley's Tiny Island: Adam Goodes

EAdam Goodes is one of the true gentleman of Australian sport. His genuine character and desire to make our country better shines through in every action. Adam had a long career as one of the best Australian Rules footballers of his generation, won the Brownlow as best in the game a couple of times, two premierships, four time All-Australian, Indigenous team of the century, the list goes on. He did alright on the field but his actions off the field are his ongoing legacy. A cracking yarn.
