After-Dinner - Vic the Barber PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 September 2013

Some years back I had a barber who, over the course of a year, regularly updated me on the events happening in his life.

 His story was both amusing and sad; I would regularly be asked to provide updates at dinner meals with friends - and as much as everyone laughed they would pause afterwards to consider the pathos of Vic's circumstance.

I orgininally wrote this as a blog; but have recorded it here as well because I think it's a story worth telling. Vic and Angie are not the real names of the characters; but everything else here is exactly as they told it, or as I experienced it myself.

I was privileged enough to see - and record - Alex Harris talking at the recent ISACA conference.

I found his talk inspirational, and he was gracious enough to grant me permission to publish it. Listening to it again as I edited the recording, I relived the experience - I would encourage any organisation looking for an interesting speaker to approach him.

Alex - thank you again for allowing me to use this content.

Alex can be contacted at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

I came across a commentary by Dominique Pienaar on the rules of Social Media in Memeburn.

After-Dinner - The Longest Journey PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 09 January 2011

The first gender reassignment surgery occurred in 1921. Nonetheless, for most people this remains a little-understood and controversial topic. It is also rare enough for most people not to have ever met a gender reassignment subject.

Natasha (not her real name) came into the studio to talk to me about her motivations, experience and reflections on why she chose to become a woman, how the process changed her and what she has learned.

Natasha's insights into what it means to belong to a gender, her commitment to the change she made, her struggle to deal with personal cost she paid: all of these will change your perspective. I left this interview realizing that courage is not always where we expect, and that our perceptions of identity are more complex than we realize.

This podcast is of an adult nature.

- Tony
