    Comic Simon Taylor
    features in the
    new 3010 podcast.

    3010 is now more than a magazine – it’s a podcast too.

    The 3010 podcast will take you into the lives of some of our amazing alumni, revealing the fantastic – and, occasionally, surprising – places their Melbourne degree has taken them.

    The first three episodes are now available, with more on the way.

    Comedian Simon Taylor (BA 2009), who has written for TV comedians Jay Leno and Shaun Micallef and who plays to sell-out crowds around the world, tells how his psychology degree helps him deal with hecklers.

    Veterinarian Dr Kath Adriaanse (DVM 2014) takes listeners on a tour of her very special workplace, Melbourne Zoo, and explains how you anaesthetise a fish.

    And Dr Fiona Price (PhD 2001, International House), the woman charged with one of the toughest jobs at graduation – reading out the names of graduands – reveals the secret to getting the pronunciation right every time.
