    I still haven't listened to the last Tuller talk, where he was talking about using journalism to achieve progress in science, and people were saying that was really good too. I need to improve my time management to make use of all the goodies people are posting up.

    Great interview with Tuller. Wish the sound quality was a bit better.

    Another terrific discussion. A lot of information was put across about PACE, with some real life experiences to illustrate how serious the disease can be and also to highlight the genuine harm caused by the insidious reach of psychiatry. The last I had to do with Centrelink was a few years on a disability pension in the late 1990s. How much harder things have become since then!

    (The sound was fine for me)

    It sounds like they are not funded well but put out great information. It was almost like the kind of setup someone would have in their basement and who knows, maybe it is.

    I've been looking up Radio Adelaide (curious to know more because I grew up in Adelaide). Looks like a small community radio station with only a couple of staff, and with links to the University of Adelaide.

    It was a terrific interview. I hope it had a good size audience.

    Listening now, recording quality is low but its manageable

    I was just thinking has anyone considered tweeting this to Clementine Ford, she is an Australian feminist commentator who may be interested in a disease whose patients are 80% female and has little research behind it and one where patients are treated badly by the national disability service. I don't know if she might be willing to retweet an endorsement of this or better yet The Feed clip which would lead to lots of exposure. It would be really great if she became interested enough to write an article about ME/CFS or David Tuller's Australia tour

    What are your thoughts on this @Penelope McMillan?

    Would an approach to Clementine Ford, or someone like her, be best coming from an ME/CFS organisation?

    It wasn't a basement but it was a small dining room/living room space in a flat in an "intentional community" in Adelaide. Very low-key but professional.

    Sorry I missed this last month - it's a great suggestion and I will follow it up through an org. Thank you!
