A thing I wrote about why men hate musicals for the July 2013 issue of Women’s Health magazine. (It’s true. They do. I read it somewhere.) Read the whole story here.
You would imagine that being invited by one of the country’s premiere women’s magazines to write an opinion piece about why boobs are great must be among the greatest honours one could bestow upon a male journalist. But truthfully, I was a little uncomfortable with the notion, not least because I’m trying to avoid being typecast as “ex-FHM editor Guy Mosel”. Still, I think I managed to write something vaguely entertaining without coming off like a sniggering masturbator. Read it and let me know what you think. This appeared in Cleo‘s December 2012 issue.
I spoke to Geoff Hutchison from the ABC Drive program in Perth on Monday, October 8. We talked about about my piece in The Punch on the Bathurst 1000 and the death of the larrikin.
I give my radio voice a seven out of 10.

Versatile, did you say? Yeah, I’m versatile. One day, US politics; the next day, sport; the day after, female pubic hair. If there’s something to be said about something, chances are I can say it. Is this the mark of a great writer, or just an incredibly gifted one? You be the judge. This column appeared in a recent issue of Cleo.
A friend at Madison magazine invited me to participate in one of their “Madison Avenue” roundtable discussions. The question: “How sexist is Australia?” Kate Ellis, then Minister for the Status of Women, and feminist and academic Eva Cox were my fellow panel members. When I was introduced to Eva, she asked, “Are you surprised I don’t have pointy horns and a tail?” Eep! If she was trying to put me on edge it worked, but when the discussion began and she discovered I wasn’t the woman-loathing shaved gorilla she expected me to be, we got on a treat. I’m not saying there was a frisson, but she did leave her number for me on the back of a Woolies receipt.
