Which means lots of things.
Church. Chocolate. Car trips. Camping. Hotcross buns slathered with butter. And FOUR DAYS OF HEAVENLY NOTHINGNESS where you can sneak in a bit of me time.
What better way to treat yourself than whacking on some headphones and listening to other people chat about interesting things?
That’s why we’ve put a list of great podcasts together to get you through this long weekend.
1. The Nitty Gritty Committee
This week, in celebration of Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Meshel gets all her funniest mates together and basically is funny as — for an hour. Do yourself a favour, it’s the most hilarious thing you’ll do all weekend. Unless, you know, you’re actually GOING to the festival.
2. Magic Lessons with Elizabeth Gilbert: “Do What Ignites Your Soul”
