Celebrated ABC journalist Paul Kennedy’s memoir examines the rites of passage for many Australian teenage boys – blackout drinking, simmering violence and emotional suppression – and the tolls they take. Funkytown charts Paul’s path to redemption as a promising young AFL player who lost his way to drinking, brawling and a faulty notion of what it means to be a man. Join Paul as he discusses his memoir Funkytown, a love letter to adolescence, football, family and outer suburbia.
