Martin Flanagan on rising to the challenge
Helen has pointed me to Martin Flanagan's recent talk:
We went to this lecture the other night and Flanagan was … a champion. The lecture was called 'The Fight for the other Australia: Writer and journalist Martin Flanagan discusses the factors that enable some people to rise to the political challenges of their times, while others fail to do so'.Flanagan's talk was the 2006 Stephen Murray-Smith Lecture, presented by the State Library of Victoria, and is available for download as a podcast. You can also read the transcript online. Thanks for the tip, Helen!
