FBi Radio’s All the Best: Power Trips

FBi comes to the Sydney Writers' Festival to shock you with power of speech.

Every Saturday morning at 10, FBi show All the Best tells a collection of real and fictional Sydney stories. Its weekly themes run from 'ritual', to 'silence', to an exploration of Sydney's compass points north, south, east and west. After a successful late night live recording at Surry Hills Library, it's getting ready for another go. A live version of the show with a Power Trip theme will join faces to its words at the Sydney Writers' Festival this Thursday evening.

As part of its lust for power, the show will combine documentary short stories with readings from Festival authors along a similarly forceful vein. Journalist Wendy Bacon will help document her turbulent days editing Tharunka, alongside pieces on modern-day magic and the cost of war. Peppered among them, Mandy Sayer will read from her fiery World War II novel Love in the Year of Lunacy, sharing a stage with show regular Vanessa Berry and fellow Festival guests, investigative reporter Anna Krien and Iranian/Australian writer Sara Haghdoosti. Singer songwriter Fergus Brown will make live music, and push into the action with occasional live score.
