Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Mel Gibson. That Hollywood spotlight ensures that most of us know the name of these celebrity Aussies, but what about those many other Australians who have forged impressive careers around the globe? Artists, academics, sportsmen and women, scientists and no doubt many, many more professions. People like the Melbournian Barrie Kosky, who is today one of the world’s most-celebrated opera directors, conductor Simone Young, who directs international orchestras and Sydney-born singer-songwriter Kat Frankie, a popular performer at top music venues all over Germany. As a journalist working internationally for decades, I’m constantly amazed at the number of Australians – high profile or otherwise – living outside Australia – who have remarkable careers and what’s more, remarkable stories to tell. In Tall Poppies I’ll be sitting down with one of these inspiring Aussies each episode to chat about their work, living abroad and their passage to international success. Of course we will also look at how growing up in Australia influenced them in the past and even today in their work. In the first series of Tall Poppies we’ll meet some of the exceptional Australians who have made Germany their home. SHORT AND LONG EPISODES Tall Poppies, the podcast, comes in two sizes. The full edition runs at around 45 minutes, but if you haven’t the time to admire the poppies in full bloom, there is the short edition of approximately 5 minutes, which gives you a chance to sample the scent of the full edition. And just so you get the complete picture of these impressive individuals, some podcasts feature music and readings as well.
