I was recently contacted by our national broadcaster, ABC, to speak about the issues raised in my article.
I’ve done the odd interview since publishing the article but the ABC is a bit of a big deal. They also tend to be left-leaning politically so I was a bit anxious about the interview. How to articulate things to this audience?
Admittedly I was interviewed on a show they have called the Religion and Ethics Report, which was definitely more sympathetic to my views, but still – I didn’t want to go full-blown Catholic on them, either.
The interview was released today and the result was… okay.
Look, everyone’s their own worst critic so I’m not going to spend too much time analysing how I did. At the very least, I got my point across while clarifying some of the misconceptions I’ve attracted since the articles both went to print, in the Catholic Weekly and The Australian.
