“The only tolerable suburb in Sydney” | Newtown 



We’re starting a new segment to our pod. Once a month, we explore a suburb in Sydney. Our inaugural selection is Jessie’s favourite suburb; Newtown. This is in the inner west of Sydney, where a lively LGBTQIA scene thrives, and everyone is pretty cool.

There are bookstores, cinemas, a million Thai restaurants and vegan eateries. Listen to a bit of its history!

Chinese Poets of the Tang Dynasty

This week, to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival (where Chinese people eat lots of mooncakes and stuff themselves with other delicious treats) Jessie and Helen talk about Chinese poets who lived during the Tang Dynasty - Li Bai and Du Fu. They also finish off the episode by reciting their favourite poems. For Helen; it’s Robert Frost’s THE ROAD NOT TAKEN. For Jessie, it’s Dorothea Lasky’s POEM TO AN UNNAMEABLE MAN.

“Out there, Nobody Can Hear You Scream”, By Latria Graham, Outside Magazine (21 September 2020)

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court’s Feminist Icon, Is Dead at 87” By Linda Greenhouse (18 September 2020)

The letter Ruth’s husband Marty wrote on his deathbed to her:

“My dearest Ruth,” it began. “You are the only person I have loved in my life, setting aside, a bit, parents and kids and their kids, and I have admired and loved you almost since the day we first met at Cornell. What a treat it has been to watch you progress to the very top of the legal world.”
