James Valentine explores the beliefs that define people in latest series

ABC Radio Sydney presenter James Valentine is launching a fresh series of his Head Room podcast, having a look at the beliefs that make people tick and why. 

“We all have a belief system – whether religious, political or ethical. It’s our beliefs about life, people, and the world that inform the choices we make,” Valentine said.

“In this series, we get to explore unexpected aspects of people you might think you know well and find out what beliefs have shaped them and their work – I believe you’ll be very interested in their beliefs.”  

Across 12 episodes of The Beliefs Series, James talks to several high-profile Australians about the beliefs, principles and core values that underpin everything they do. 

Listeners can expect thought-provoking questions like, Do you believe people can change? Do you believe in an afterlife? And also, some more light-hearted questions like, which are better, cats or dogs?

All of which cut to the core of guests, shedding some light on their world view.

Guests include:

  • Richard Fidler – broadcaster and writer
  • George Miller – filmmaker and Mad Max director
  • Clare Wright – historian and professor of history at La Trobe University
  • Danielle Woods – CEO of the Grattan Institute
  • William Barton – composer, musician and vocalist
  • Cathy Wilcox – cartoonist, best known for her work for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age

Episode one featuring an interview with Richard Fidler, plus more, are available now on the ABC listen app.
