We’ve come a long way as a society in the past few hundred years (or more). Huge advances in technology, healthcare, working conditions and our treatment of groups such as women, children, immigrants and so on.

Sometimes, we see the pendulum swing too far in the other direction and in today’s episode I chat to someone who’s all too familiar with the potential cost of some of society’s advancement.

Michael Griffith is a tram driver, father, friend and a playwright. After losing a close friend to suicide a couple of years ago he decided to write a play that addresses this issue in a unique way. His play, Suicide Row, is at times confronting, insightful and often funny (yes, it is possible to laugh in a way that’s not disrespectful or macabre!). It follows the journey of some unfortunate men who have attempted to take their own lives…and what ensues is getting people talking about suicide, mental health and the value of ‘plain language’.

Michael and I take a look at how this plays out in our schools, workplaces and our homes and probably raise more questions than we answer!

Have a listen and I guarantee it’ll get you thinking…perhaps differently and in a way that will spark positive change for you or those around you.

Tradies In Business

Ft. Nicole And Warrick

Whether you’re a plumber, electrician, builder, motor mechanic, landscaper, tiler, glazier, painter, carpenter, concretor or any of the myriad of trades and contractors that keep the world running, this podcast has been produced with you in mind. Your hosts, Warrick ‘Waz’ Bidwell and Nicole ‘Nic’ Cox, were both born into tradie families and have first hand experience of the gut busting, money stress and pressures that trade businesses can place on their owners and their families! Nic and Waz strongly believe in the opportunity that exists for all tradie business owners to create a flexible, financially secure business for now and for their families’ future. Waz and Nic interview guests on a range of topics such as marketing, finance, human resources, legal issues, mindset, motivation, physical and mental health, industry updates and more! They love a laugh and a good story so tune in for a unique look at how to ‘get off the tools’ and break the cycle of financial hardship and stress to create the trade business you really wanted!
