Intellectual entertainment series, BOLDtalks, will launch in Australia with a rocket scientist, extreme athlete, cinematographer, politician and international maths genius among the twelve presenters taking part in the one-day event on Saturday 9 November at Melbourne’s The Malthouse.

The event will be opened by barrister, author and human rights advocate Julian Burnside QC and it will celebrate the annual theme ‘Open Dialogue’.  Tickets are on sale now and are only $49.95 for the whole day – a steal!

We’ll share info on the various speakers over the next few weeks starting with the incredible story of the Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones – best mates and Australian big-wave surfers who travel the world looking for their next adrenalin rush.

They were the stars of the last year’s documentary ‘Storm Surfers’ (see above trailer) which was the world’s first 3D surfing documentary.
