Open Minds is a chat show hosted by two informal but well-informed bearded men, namely Bernard Korbman and Dominic Carter. Both have walked very different paths in life, but have ended up in the same place, at the same time, with the same Jew-ish sense of humour.
Is that a coincidence? We think not. Or maybe we do. Find out the answer to this and many other conundrums (or is it conundra?) by tuning in to this quirky but very enjoyable show.
They are joined every week by a special guest to discuss a variety of issues such as politics, art, music, philosophy, religion, current affairs and culture. These wide ranging topics are approached with curiosity, respect and dry wit. And above all, an open mind.
I am lucky that in my case, my wife, family and my dog Poppy are my bedrock. Dogs have always been my most effective happy pills. I strongly identify with Don Quixote, naïve and chasing windmills. My quest is to live what the Stoics called “the good life”. The Stoics elaborated a detailed taxonomy of virtue, dividing virtue into four main types: wisdom, justice, courage, and moderation. Wisdom is subdivided into good sense, good calculation, quick-wittedness, discretion, and resourcefulness. Justice is subdivided into piety, honesty, equity, and fair dealing.
My friendships are very important to me and my co-host Dominic Carter keeps me intellectually stimulated and makes me laugh.
Please join us on Open Minds, we can promise you a stimulating, irreverent and satirical look at the world around us.
Born and bred in Europe from English parents, Dominic has spent most of his life working in languages, from teaching to publishing to translating. He came to Australia for love 10 years ago and runs a successful language services company with his much better half.
In his spare time, he likes to read a large range of fiction and non-fiction in English and in French. He’s also a very keen amateur musician, whose music features in documentaries, art works and shoe-gazing albums. He also likes to buy lordships for himself.
