Secrets, Whales and a Lovely Voice

The best of Breakfast  – 8 to 11 September

Whaling has been out of the spotlight for a little while. Some may even have thought the battle was won, but the hunt will continue and it was good to speak with someone who has followed the story once it left the public eye.

Child abuse is always a tricky subject to cover but I spoke with an author who had lived through the experience and wrote a book to help kids understand that it’s ok to talk about. It was surprisingly brisk, we got through all I wanted to cover in under five minutes which was unexpected considering the weight of the subject matter.

For the final interview of this post and my week I was joined by the lovely and slightly erratic Loren Kate. We’ve spoken before and she’s always bubbly early in the morning, if a little unpredictable.
