Blog-Versary Guest Podcast: The Postal Vote and Marriage Equality in Australia: A Gay Man’s Perspective.
I want to thank my son for taking part in our 5th blog anniversary by chatting with me in this podcast. He is a wonderful young man with a private but amazing sense of humour. He is incredibly intelligent and articulate and I’m very proud of him, just as I am my daughter. We are very close but it is still intimidating being interviewed by your mother and being listened to by others. We would love to see Marriage Equality pass into law in Australia. The current postal vote closes this Friday and we hope to have one last say before it does.
We winged this chat, nothing was prepared, so if we waffle I hope that’s taken as us being genuine and real.
Anything we express in this podcast is our personal opinion and not meant to be taken as a political endorsement, statement, gospel, or anything more than two members of a family contributing to the “reasoned debate” that has been thrust upon us.
While I have appeared on radio and TV before, I have never been involved in organising a podcast. I hope that the quality is fine – because it’s an eBay microphone and some Microsoft audio software being used for this post. I’ve also never set this up on a WordPress blog previously. I’m sure my son will save me 🙂
If you have opinions about the vote for Marriage Equality we would love to hear from you so please feel free to leave a comment below. However, no hate speech will be allowed on the pages of this blog. If you don’t feel like contributing, thanks for stopping by and listening to us shooting the silly-serious breeze, or being silerious as my son likes to call it.
Even though the postal vote is non-biding, we hope Australia sends a resounding message to the Australian government that it’s time. Our country has always been known as a place that will give people a fair go, so it’s time for a fair go in regards to Marriage Equality in our country. #VoteYes
