THE SHED WIRELESS SEASON 2 |ePISODE 2

It’s the wireless you’d listen to if you were in the Shed. Or the garden!

He is Australia’s favourite gardener, a thinker, a big believer in shedding and he sports the finest beard this side of the North Pole. Gardening Australia’s Costa Georgiadis is our special guest. Our Shed in the Spotlight is Crystal Brook, South Australia. Meet the former MP-turned-shedder who might just let his mates loose on his Rolls Royce. We are talking Bad Habits and Rip Woodchip reckons he’s broken a few over the years. Stuart Torrance talks about his fiery relationship with cigarettes. Plus take a deep breath and relax because we are going to “Ask the Doc” about the prostate.

THE SHED WIRELESS SEASON 2 |ePISODE 1

Tell him he’s dreaming (this one’s going straight to the pool room)

Legendary Australian actor and friend of the Shed movement Michael Caton talks about life, health, the Sullivans, the Castle and how his life was turned around after hitting rock bottom. Raymond Terrace Men’s Shed features in our new segment “Shed in the Spotlight”. The remarkable story of one Shedder who had a horrific stroke before his 40th birthday, just months after moving to a new country with a young family. A legendary Shed music group and their grand plans for a grand tour. Stuart gives some simple fitness tips. Rip Woodchip promotes his plan for peak performance and we introduce “Ask the Doc” — your free regular appointment with a men’s health expert.

THE SHED WIRELESS ePISODE #10

In this episode you’ll meet the first woman ever to be elected to the Australian Men’s Shed Association Board of Directors. Why would she want to do that?!  We also meet the newest member of the AMSA team. She may be a familiar name and yes…she too is a she. What might Men’s Sheds look like in the future? And what’s the magic formula that makes shedding popular everywhere from Tipperary to Tumut? Our international panel will discuss. We’ll talk about music as medicine — how a good tune can give you a good tune-up. And Rip Woodchip gives us a taste of his music collection.

“As my old Dad used to say”: Stuart talks about the wisdom handed down through the generations through sayings, quotes and adages. An inspired Rip Woodchip shares his favourite bush wisdom. By popular demand, we sit down with our Irish Men’s Shed brothers for some more craic. And Professor John Macdonald talks about what older Shedders can get from young Shedders — and vice versa. Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Aaron Kearney and AMSA Boss David Helmers.
