My Personal Board: Episode One

Five alarmingly self-aware people meet on the phone for an hour each week to talk about their lives and their goals.

2005 / Eurydice Aroney / Radio Eye, ABC, Australia

Five alarmingly self-aware people meet on the phone for an hour each week to talk about their lives and their goals.

Dan, an entrepreneur; Bonita, a psychoanalyst; Stephan, a musician; David, a new age workshop teacher are encouraged to leave daily voice mails with progress reports on the "key indicators" of their personal growth projects. Producer Eurydice Aroney joined the board in the early 1990s and recorded its proceedings over a six-year period. The result is 20 episodes of a "reality radio" soap opera -- very intimate, strangely amusing, and totally addictive.

In episode one, we meet the Board members, who imagine how their own parents see them.

Episodes 2-4 can be found in Extras.

My Personal Board was produced in 1998.
