336: Twelve Minute Convos w/ Neill Bartlett

Neill Bartlett-

Neill Bartlett is the host of The Aussie Radio Show podcast – a Down Under magazine radio show targeting an audience of Aussies all around the world. “What drives me to produce the show is a fascination to interview people way more interesting than I am”.

A former Rock N Roll photographer, Neill worked with many famous faces throughout the 80’s and 90’s. But Rock N Roll wasn’t the only photography Neill found a passion in. Neill spent many years traveling around his native Australia capturing the immense beauty often created in front of him and his camera. “We should only take what we capture and leave the impressions of a tripod in the Earth”.

Neill Bartlett is a self-published author of three children’s books: ‘My Friend Old Ted’ – ‘Happy Birthday To You Old Ted’ – ‘The Golden Bears’ where he wrote and photographed about the adventures of two very special teddy bears around Australia.

As a child who was adopted in the 60’s, Neill reconnected with his birth family at age 31. It is some of these experiences and the stigmas attached to adoption that inspired his first novel ‘Sisters Of Mercy’ – and the similar stigmas attached to the world’s oldest profession – prostitution. How can these two very different subjects collide in a strong character driven novel (originally published in The US by Publish America).

Currently living in Tennessee, Neill has been based for 15 years in America after leaving his homeland – Australia.
