If there's an existing thread on this subject in another guise, @Mr T. please shut me down and point me in the right direction :)

Woke about 4am and surfed around for something to listen to.
Never realised the ABC Listen app had free audio books available!

I've always found Anh Do very likeable and having listened to him read the first 4 chapters of his book, even more so now...!

Heart wrenching, frightening and humorous too.

Regardless of some of the *smile* that happens in Australia, hearing his story makes me appreciate how lucky we are.

"Prologue" episode from "The Happiest Refugee" - https://abclisten.page.link/CUwkaAtF38NB6HXX6. Available now through the ABC listen App - http://bit.ly/ABCradioApp

Just listening to Sapiens which is basically a complete history of humans and how we have taken over the world. Does religion science nationalism environmental destruction capitalism / consumerism timekeeping etc etc.

Very sobering to listen to. About fourteen hours so you need half a day!

I'm listening to David Goggins - Can't hurt me. Pretty inspiring stuff.
