Television + Talks

A selection of my most recent TV appearances

Q&A Panel – Vivid Festival special ABC TV

I appear alongside rapper, Briggs and Atlassian boss, Mike Cannon-Brookes to discuss AFP raids on journalists, changing the date of Australia day and the way that screens are shaping our habits and identity.

The quest for digital superfoods TEDx talk

Here I introduce my concept of Digital Nutrition and why I believe that digital detoxing won’t lead to long term behaviour change. Instead, could harnessing the power of serious games be a way to feed our minds more digitally nutritious content?

Social Disconnect Q&A

We post, we tweet, we like, and we share – but what are the consequences of our growing dependence on social media? The panel explores how we might retain the positive aspects of connectivity and people power that social media offers.

Apps for overcoming procrastination The Today Show

Yes, there’s an app for that! Oh the irony, of being able to use tools like Evernote and SuperBetter to harness your focus and tick things off the never-ending to-do list.

Podcasts

A selection of podcasts I have been invited to speak on.

Big Kids: The War On Screens

Mammia: This glorious mess

“My friends keep telling me how addictive gaming is for teens and that I should get them off the games now! …. Should I? And if I should, how the hell would I?” During the week, we received this listener dilemma and so for today’s episode, we took it to an expert, Jocelyn Brewer, Mother, teacher, writer and psychologist with a specialisation in cyberpsychology.

Tales of the Fourth Trimester

Tales of the Fourth Trimester

I share my perinatal experience with Naomi Christoulakis from Cocoon by Naomi. We cover how the gym creche helped protect me from post-natal depression. We dive deep into the guilt-inducing topic of kids and devices… and why perhaps the answer isn’t banning screens or doing some kind of digital detox, but a more moderate approach that allows for mindful scrolling.
