Historia – Australien – Nya podcasts

  • Australian theatre tells its own story so badly.

    Dr. Rob thinks they can do the job better. That's what this podcast is.

    A life in the Australian theatre is complicated, exhausting, misrepresented and misunderstood. Dr Rob Vs., presents a close up look at the day to day realities and a birds eye assessment of Australian theatre and the systems that support it.

    Boy, doesn't that sound like a laugh...

    A blend of history, critique, comedy and story telling.

    Recorded live at Theatreworks in St Kilda, Victoria.

  • This podcast series is about Australia’s relations with and response to the world from the late 19th Century to the present. It focuses on the historical, cultural, ideological, economic and strategic factors shaping the government’s foreign and defence policies. It looks first at historical themes that still have a bearing on Australia in the contemporary world, then moves on to discuss how Australian politicians and policymakers have reacted to and acted in periods of war and stress, crisis and creativity, hope and delusion. It looks at the role of prime ministers, individual ministers and political parties, the globalising economy, trade, immigration and debates over alliances, Asia, and national loyalty.

  • Richard Nixon was a complex and contradictory figure, and his public speaking style reflected this complexity. He was a skilled orator who could deliver powerful and persuasive speeches, but he was also prone to awkwardness and gaffes.Nixon's strengths as a public speaker included his intelligence, his command of facts, and his ability to connect with an audience on an emotional level. He was also a master of the "Nixonian pause," which he used to create suspense and emphasis.However, Nixon also had some weaknesses as a public speaker. He could be stiff and wooden in his delivery, and he was sometimes prone to rambling and digressing. He was also known for his "sweaty Nixon" persona, which was exacerbated by his tendency to perspire profusely when he was nervous.Despite his weaknesses, Nixon was an effective public speaker overall. He was able to use his skills to connect with voters and deliver his message in a persuasive way. This was evident in his successful campaigns for President and Vice President, as well as his ability to rally support for his policies while in office.Here are some specific examples of Nixon's strengths and weaknesses as a public speaker:Strengths:

This was evident in his speeches, which were often full of detailed information and statistics.Emotional connection with audience: Nixon was able to connect with his audience on an emotional level by sharing personal stories and anecdotes. This was particularly effective in his speeches to working-class Americans, who could relate to his "rags to riches" story.Use of the "Nixonian pause:" Nixon mastered the use of the "Nixonian pause," which was a dramatic pause that he used to create suspense and emphasis. This was particularly effective in his speeches on television.Weaknesses:
    Stiff and wooden delivery: Nixon could be stiff and wooden in his delivery, which sometimes made him appear uncomfortable in front of an audience.Rambling and digressing: Nixon was sometimes prone to rambling and digressing in his speeches. This could make his speeches difficult to follow and could lose the attention of his audience."Sweaty Nixon" persona: Nixon was known for his "sweaty Nixon" persona, which was exacerbated by his tendency to perspire profusely when he was nervous.

  • Salty Plums: theyโ€™re a little bit sweet, a little bit sour and a little bit salty. Some say if youโ€™ve never tasted one, youโ€™ve never been to the real Darwin.

    Introduced by Chinese migrants in the 17th Century, theyโ€™ve become a symbol of this cityโ€™s unique multicultural community.

    Darwin or Garramilla, as the Larrakia Traditional Owners call it, is a city plonked right in the middle of the tropical Top End, closer to Asia than any Australian capital city. Famous for crocodiles, sunset markets and a big cyclone called Tracy, yet, thereโ€™s so much more to this place.

    The city has a tumultuous past from a bombing attack in World War 2 to three big cyclones - all of which left it in pieces. Over the decades, people from 100 different nationalities have migrated to this city, to re-build it, as they fell in love, grew families and created a place to call home.

    Hosted by Larrakia woman Nicole Brown, Salty Plum Stories shares the experiences of six people from six different cultures, bringing you into the heart of the real Darwin, Salty Plums and all.

    Salty Plum Stories is a Discover Darwin podcast for the City of Darwin.

    It was produced by Lori Uden and Cinnamon Nippard, with editorial support from Johanna Bell and mixing by Hamish Robertson.

    The incredible soundtrack was composed and mixed by Kuya James and Tutup Mulut.
