Grow up, find a partner, have kids — we’ve been doing it for thousands of years. But more and more women are choosing to ignore that path. And the latest research says they’re actually happier for it. So why do we judge women without kids?

If you are a woman of a certain age, there is no question that the issue of children will come up.

If you have one, you may be asked when the next one if coming along. If you don’t have any, you may well be asked when you will.

But what if you have chosen not to have children- how do people see you then?

That is a question that journalist Tory Shepherd has explored in a new essay called “On Freedom”. She is joined by psychotherapist Dr Zoe Krupka, who is also a guest on ABC podcast Ladies We Need to Talk.

On Monday the 1st of October, 2018 I spoke with Jo McManus and Charlotte Hamlyn about sibling loss.

 

On the morning of August 7, 2015 Jo McManus’ posted on social media ‘Our beautiful Max is gone.’

Jo’s 20 year old son had died the night before, her surviving son, Sam, was due to start his final exams.

In 1971 when Zoe Krupka was just four years old, her brother died of a congenital heart condition.

Now a psychotherapist, Dr Krupka says the literature around siblings and grief is scarce, both women share their personal stories and how they honour the grief of a surviving sibling.

Charlotte Hamlyn spoke with Zoe and Jo.

I recently spoke to Jon Fain and Sally Warhaft about the lure of Lotto.

With slogans such as “Dare to dream” and “Wouldn’t it be nice”, lotto companies sell the fantasy of easy money.

But according to psychotherapist Zoe Krupka, that dream is most alluring to those who can least afford it.

She said she had seen clients treat entering the lottery as if they were “buying their golden ticket”.

“There are people who budget for lottery tickets and it’s an issue — money’s always an issue,” she told ABC Radio Melbourne‘s Jon Faine.

An eye for an eye, a life for a life – is the death penalty the right punishment for a serious crime? How much are modern attitudes changing and is the death penalty still viewed as the ultimate deterrent? #TalkAboutIt takes a look.

An interview with the incredibly vibrant and on the ball Del Irani. I get to talk about our selective attention to those facing the death penalty and make some punchy points about fear and social control.
