Unexpected and profound insights from smart people you’d like to meet. Mark Parry has a perspective, but as a conduit, he wants you to hear the perspectives of others. Mark’s longstanding commitment to learning, teaching and communication gets more engaging than ever as he chats with a broad and diverse range of intelligent, friendly and interesting people—artists, researchers, scientists, psychologists, film makers—who are thinking up new ideas and then getting on with making a big or small impact on the world. Mark takes time to listen to their perspectives, and so can you. If you ever wanted to know what the shattered ideology of the American dream looks like as a self-aware oil painting on instagram or how reflection and creative thought helps a scientific researcher in pursuit of a cancer cure or what melodramatic sex on 70s Australian television tells us about the politics of our society, then look no further. The goal: to get big, complex, challenging, important and contemporary ideas out to listeners that never knew they were interested. This is Perspectives in Parryville.
