On the Couch with Bruce Gladwin

Bruce-Gladwin-photo-by-Cherine-FahdWho is Bruce Gladwin?
Who is, what?

What would you do differently to what you do now?
I’d like to have a side hustle as a wealthy philanthropist to support independent artists and environmental and humanitarian causes.

Who inspires you and why?
Zoe Coombs Marr is brilliant. Irreverent, left field, precision comedy and commentary. She should be given her own prime time television show, immediately.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Acknowledge past and current injustices, eliminate plastics, support renewables, and put more women in charge.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Apollo Bay for its forests, beaches and fish and chips.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
The Victoria Market for its boreks, donuts, atmosphere and energy.

What are you currently reading?
The Masters Tools Will Never Dismantle the Masters House
by Audre Lorde.

What are you currently listening to?
The Luke Howard Trio.

Happiness is?
Happiness hides behind its own name.

What does the future hold for you?
Death, but until then I’ll try and make myself useful, enjoy people, art and nature.
