#3 "Hey Frank, we talked about this remember?"

It’s time for episode number 3 of the Magnus Sermo podcast and boy do we have a cracker for you. We were extremely lucky to be joined by all round sports legend, rowing champ, world record holder in cycling and inaugural Director of the Office for Women in Sport and Recreation Dr Bridie O’Donnell. In her spare time (what?!) she commentates for SBS on the Tour de France and other prestigious races. Bridie was joined by Dr Alison Skene, anatomical pathologist and creator of the fantastic Topbike Tours Hanging Rock Handicap women’s only race, one that she was awarded Cycling Victoria Best Women’s Development Initiative in 2019. Rounding off the panel was Senior producer,  theatre director and Tasmanian arts legend Annette Downs. We were also joined by’s Stef Hanson but not as a guest but in her new role as co-host! Welcome Stef!

We visit a huge range of topics this week, diving into the experiences at the elite level of sport through to those at the community level. We learnt that there’s some fairly harsh differences between the two including some pretty nasty abuse hurled at the elite end. There was some great input from Annette, who despite acknowledging that she’s not the biggest sports fan in the world, sought to propose ways the sporting world can learn from the arts when it comes to inclusion and diversity.

Have a listen and make sure you subscribe so you can get this great podcast in your earholes every week!
