More absolute bs from the Hume incumbent.

As most people don't have one yet, for the record, here's what our home electric car charging setup looks like. Notice anything complicated? Oh yes, it's a standard power point, like everyone already has in their garage.
Sure, this one is a slightly more capable 15A outlet which can charge around 30% faster than the more common 10A ones, but that's OPTIONAL. We use bog standard 10A outlets when visiting friends and family (and even shopping centres!), and it works fine. We carry the black part in the boot and can charge anywhere there is a power point (ever stopped to consider how many more places that is than you can buy petrol?). The white bit at the bottom plugs into the car and that's as complicated as it gets.

Newer cars support higher charge rates which do need bigger outlets, but again that's OPTIONAL. You'll easily refill any car after the average daily drive overnight on a standard 10A outlet.

Don't fall for LNP lies.

Pros and cons of today:

Root canal ❌👎🤕🦷💉

Another 8kW of solar panels added to the house ✔️🌞🔌

I find the unwritten rules around this frustratingly hard to grasp given I wasn't raised to understand them. Thanks to those women who have watched me get it wrong and guided rather than laughed.

And gents - the world would be a better place if you were in on this too, rather than having to constantly try to out-do each other. I tried and failed at that, and it didn't help my mental health at all.

It's impossible to be the best at everything. Just be the best you can be (factoring in issues you can't control), and help others to do the same.

As per the drop you might hear today on Kinderling Kids Radio, this International Women's Day I'd like to pay tribute to my wife Liz Gould, because she stuck by me during my transition.
And that's just one reason that she's an amazing, strong, inspiring woman that I am completely privileged to share my life with 💓

Well timed for Mardi Gras, here's the interview I did with Feed Play Love (aka Kinderling Kids Radio Conversations) talking about living in the country, parenting, transition, family, community and Rainbow Families, if you feel like listening would be a constructive use of 31 minutes of your life.

It was all first-take with no notes or preparation, and my first time being interviewed so I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out, even if there's quite a lot of nervous rambling going on!

Thanks to Shevonne Hunt Presenter and Cinnamon Nippard for making me comfortable enough to do this.

You can listen on the page, or there's links in the comments below for your podcast client, or just search for "Feed Play Love".

Apparently people want to hear me interviewed about being trans and a parent - who knew?!

I'll post the podcast link in the next couple of weeks once I've vetted it :)

I've certainly got a face made for radio.
