Tara Brown - Pursuing the doctor title , Doctor Terry Vo – the name and title has a good ring to it, and I have no doubt that in the not too distant future, we’ll be hearing it a lot. At present, Dr Terry Vo is really just Terry Vo, an almost 18-year-old Curtin University student in Perth.

Liz Hayes - My time with Russell Brand , What I’m about to write is not going to please all. Some may even be offended and others may just not believe me.

Allison Langdon: A Bizarre Encounter , How is this for a bizarre first meeting? Arriving at Doug Seus' home in Utah, we walk around a corner into his backyard to find the 70-year-old lazing in a plastic arm chair. There's nothing strange about that. We take another two steps, and stop in our tracks … there in front of us sits a 700kg grizzly bear, about two metres from Doug's feet!
