Share this podcast

This episode is a short introduction to Julian Leeser MP's new podcast series, 'Getting a Grip', inspiring stories of resilience and recovery.

The series explores the stories of people who have come through extraordinary situations: a terrorist attack, a cancer diagnosis, wartime separation from family, confronting the AIDS virus and escaping the clutches of a white supremacist group.

“I wanted to demonstrate that Australians are capable of confronting challenges like Covid 19 and overcoming them. I hope to inspire listeners and give them a sense of perspective by drawing on the stories of Australians who have overcomes their own challenges.” Leeser said.

"While the individual experiences of the people I am talking to are all different, the collective experience says something about the resilience of the human spirit."
