Loved the book!
I’m a long term fan of the podcast and have attended a live show in Melbourne, Australia. The book didn’t disappoint. A great listen! Thought provoking, well written and read by the friendly, familiar and funny hosts.
Loved learning more about Karen and Georgia. Thanks for putting yourselves out there. SSDGM

Heartbreaking, joyous, traumatic, intimate and revelatory, Reckoning is the book where Magda Szubanski, one of Australia’s most beloved performers, tells her story. In this extraordinary memoir, Magda describes her journey of self-discovery from a suburban childhood, haunted by the demons of her father’s espionage activities in wartime Poland and by her secret awareness of her sexuality, to the complex dramas of adulthood and her need to find out the truth about herself and her family.

  • Love Your Sister

  • A Searingly Honest and Inspiring Memoir of Family, Love and Unicycles

How far would you go for someone you love...on a unicycle? Brothers and sisters often dare each other to do things – it's what siblings do. However, when Connie Johnson dared her brother, Samuel, to embark on a one-wheeled odyssey around Australia, she knew it was a big ask. But Connie knew exactly what she was doing and was sure he wouldn't say no. Not this time. Born a year apart, Connie and Samuel Johnson have always been close.

I HATE thinking about death & dying so this was a strange pick for me...but I really enjoyed it.
It's not sad & depressing, it's mostly uplifting, interesting and entertaining.
