Arghh doing TV is nerve-wracking..!
So in case you haven’t read my last post, I had the opportunity to have an op-ed published in The Australian newspaper this week about the Kyle Sandilands controversy.
When the op-ed came out, I was contacted by Sky News for a live interview. For my non-Aussie audience, Sky News is a conservative news network, but one which is not publicly available. Only those with cable TV (Foxtel) have access to it.
Still, it’s not every day you get asked to be interviewed on television so I agreed. It was, as you’d imagine, a very sympathetic interview and the host, Chris Kenny, was agreeable in every sense of the word.
It was only a short interview (about five minutes) but I’m overall pleased with how it went. At the very least, it was a chance to defend my Christian faith publicly. We discussed the double standard that seems to exist for Christianity compared to other religions and groups. (You can’t tell, but at the start my heart was pounding so hard it was hard to hear over the top of it!)
So if you’re interested to watch it (or you’re interested to know what I look and sound like), you can find the interview here. Unfortunately I can’t post it on here as there is no direct link. Enjoy!
