I have found a lot of podcasts I would like to listen to. My problem is finding the time to do so.
I mention this because I have just added another one to this list.
On the weekend we published a story about a new podcast launched by BackTrack founder Bernie Shakeshaft, where he catches up with everyday Australians he finds inspiring.
Bernie's own story is well-known, but I'm looking forward to hearing him talk to others about their own story.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, 1000 people were tested at the mobile drive-through clinic, which was set up behind the hospital over the past three weeks.
Meanwhile, in the CBD some things are starting to get back to normal - or at least some semblance of it - and I ran into a group of older cyclists outside Seesaw Coffee on Friday morning who were enjoying being able to stop for coffee on their ride.
But while some things are looking brighter, the drama at Armidale Regional Council continues.
In the Land and Environment Court on Tuesday, the council was granted a temporary injunction to stop five councillors voting to terminate the CEO's contract.
On Monday, last week, the councillors had been set to vote at an extraordinary meeting, but six councillors submitted apologies after the council launched the legal action and were granted an injunction ahead of Tuesday's court hearing.
It will be back in court in June. Meanwhile the local ratepayers association is asking how much the legal action is costing the council.
And State MP Adam Marshall revealed he had contacted the Minister for Local Government to request the Office of Local Government intervene to resolve the dysfunction. The mayor said he would the mayor said he would welcome that.
While that goes on, I'm just grateful we have good coffee and podcasts for a distraction. Which I must find time for now!
