Carol Duncan - Novopod



A selection of interviews and features from my radio career.


  • HPV - The Hospital, The Robot, and the Speech Pathologist

    02/04/2018 Duración: 10min

    The Da Vinci surgical system (robot) was reasonably new to Australia in 2013 and was mostly being using for prostate and gynaecological surgery. At Macquarie University Hospital in Sydney, surgeons from other specialities are also using the robot, including in this case for throat cancer. Carol Bryant is the CEO of MUH. Speech pathology is also a crucial part of recovery for patients after this sort of surgery - not just for speech but for swallowing safely. Jenny Cole-Virtue is a Speech Pathologist at MUH.

  • HPV - "I've just got a sore throat!" The role of the GP.

    02/04/2018 Duración: 11min

    Do we underestimate the role of our GPs in our healthcare and our understanding of diagnoses and treatment options? Dr Wendy Unwin has been Brad Keeling's GP for 30 years so how does she see her role in his care after his throat cancer diagnosis?

  • HPV - Diagnosis and treatment options. Dr Jonathan Clark.

    02/04/2018 Duración: 10min

    DR JONATHAN CLARK: Brad's been diagnosed with a squamous cell cancer of the tongue base. Squamous cell cancers are the most common type of cancer that we see in the throat and back of the tongue. His cancer has spread from the tongue base to a single lymph node in the upper part of his neck.The majority of these cancers in 2012 are viral cancers caused by the human papilloma virus and we think in Brad's case that this is one of those types of cancers.Previously, the majority of cancers in the throat and tongue base were cancers induced by smoking.The rate of smoking in countries such as Australia is reducing and we're seeing a dramatic change in the prevalence of cancers in this area with the majority now being viral cancers as opposed to cancers due to smoking.CAROL DUNCAN: The cervical cancer vaccine which is now being provided to young girls is to protect them against HPV.Yes, it's the same virus and the same type of that virus, type 16, which causes cancers both in the cervix and cancers in the throat - i

  • HPV - One man's story of an avoidable throat cancer

    02/04/2018 Duración: 17min

    Ep1 - Meet Brad.For a large part of 2012, my friend Brad complained on and off about a sore throat and earache. On the Friday night before Christmas 2012, I spent six hours in an operating theatre with him as a surgical team removed an HPV-induced cancer from his throat and tongue, and removed the lymph glands in one side of his neck. HPV is responsible for several cancers in men - throat, anus, penis amongst them. HPV vaccination was made part of the Australian vaccination program for girls in 2007, and boys in 2013. Australia now leads the world in the reduction of HPV-induced cancers, including cervical cancer.

  • Stevie Wright | The Easybeats -2009

    14/01/2018 Duración: 26min

    In 2009, I had the chance to interview the legendary Stevie Wright - lead singer of The Easybeats in the 1960s and trouble rockstar ever after. I was warned in advance that I should pre-record the interview as Stevie was 'a bit slow' after years of serious drug and alcohol abuse. Happily, I didn't find him at all difficult to chat with. Indeed, Stevie's openness about his heroin addiction and his desperation to shake it are incredibly moving. 

  • Tony Robinson 2012

    10/01/2018 Duración: 07min

    Tony Robinson talks about how to encourage a community to care about its history.Tony Robinson is perhaps best known to an older generation of television viewer as Baldrick from Blackadder, but to younger generations he's known as the guy leading archaeological digs on Time Team or the poor unfortunate host up to his knees in a tank of urine in Worst Jobs In History (that story was about tanning hides for leather).In December, 2011, Tony was filming in Australia for his series Tony Robinson's Time Walks in which he visits cities to reveal their history.Carol Duncan caught up with him in Cathedral Park, what was Newcastle's first burial ground at Christ Church Cathedral, to find out how we can continue to encourage people to care about their local history.'I think the most important thing we can do is to talk to your kids about it. I know I have such a vivid passion for history is because my dad used to talk to me about his adventures in World War II,' said Tony.'Not that he had a glorious war or anything, he

  • Ben Gillies - Silverchair/Bento 2012

    10/01/2018 Duración: 19min

    Silverchair have been one of Australia's most successful bands for the last 20 years. Drummer Ben Gillies joined Carol Duncan in the studio for a chat about his solo project - Bento, and why he continues to call Newcastle home. Daniel Johns, Chris Joannou and Ben Gillies were just kids doing work experience at a Newcastle radio station when I first met them nearly 20 years ago. Those three boys have gone on to become strong and confident men and wonderful musicians - collectively and individually. I suspect the whole town is pretty proud of them.In 2012, the band have celebrated 20 years of Australian and international success, 21 ARIA awards from 49 nominations, 6 APRA awards, and all five of their studio albums have reached number one of the Australian album charts.Over the last few years the three members of the band have also gone out to do their own musical projects and drummer, Ben Gillies, came into the studios to talk about life, music, growing up in public, and taking the leap into solo performance.W

  • Jeff Martin - The Tea Party/The Armada 2011

    10/01/2018 Duración: 27min

    Jeff Martin and band – The ArmadaSocial media makes the world smaller.  And it makes my life richer.  Because I have conversations (sometimes only in 140 characters!) with people from around the world who are generous, warm people who share the stories of their lives – the happy, the sad, the fabulous, the rare, the raunchy – you name it.  Ordinary people with ordinary stories, just like you and me.  Somehow the twitterverse led me to @abhijitmajumder who is the editor of an Indian tabloid newspaper.  Let me say right here that I’m not at all sure Abhijit’s newspaper and I have very much in common at all, and while I don’t actually know him, I suspect he’s quite different to his newspaper’s target audience.  In the best possible ways.Within minutes of Julia Gillard becoming Australia’s 27th Prime Minister, Abhijit sent me a note on Twitter asking what I thought a change of PM might mean for Indian/Australian relationships, particularly in light of the highly-publicised ‘race attacks’ on Indian students in Vic

  • Malcolm Turnbull NBN 2013

If you want to know why Malcolm is holding a pomegranate, you will have to listen to the interview. (ABC Local:)On the eve of Malcolm Turnbull's visit to Newcastle, the New Zealand parliament voted to redefine marriage as a union between two people, becoming the first country in the Asia-Pacific region to do so.CAROL DUNCAN: Why do we still not have this right for Australians?MALCOLM TURNBULL: We can (do this here) but as you know the parliament considered the matter last year and voted against it. But it's open to coming back again.There is certainly much more rapid change in this area than many of us, including myself, had anticipated. In addition to New Zealand legislating, the UK is in the process of doing so, France
