But he is also an accomplished novelist and his latest book Infidelity is his sixth novel. He is an acute and compassionate observer of the human condition and when he chatted to Sonya he discussed both our capacity for success and our numerous flaws, how he is forever seeking the truth, and why fiction can be even more powerful than non-fiction.

To look at the symptoms and treatment options Natasha Stott Despoja spoke to Dr Patricia Montanaro, President of the AMA's South Australian Branch, and Associate Professor Michael Baigent, from Flinders University and a board member of Beyond Blue.

Having abandoned established Christianity, the former Jesuit priest and prominent historian, Dr Ian Guthridge, knows what religion 'looks and feels like' from the inside and from the outside. Dr Guthridge was a Jesuit priest for 20 years. In the late 1960s, after much deliberation and reflection, he abandoned the constraints of traditional religion, the priesthood and ultimately the church. He is now a historical and religious writer of note and joined Sonya Feldhoff in the studio to discuss the cases for and against religious belief, referring to his latest book "Religion - Faith, Fact or Fantasy?".

American trend forecaster Gerald Celente is a man with a pretty good track record of predictions. He predicted the 1987 Wall Street Crash and the fall of communism. What he told Ian Henschke today in his forecast for 2012 was fascinating, funny and a bit frightening. His take on the world's economic woes is alarming to say the least. Gerald Celente suggests it's time the money lenders weren't bailed out but "thrown out of the temple". He says Australia needs to be aware that its economy won't get out of this unscathed as the European and the US economies wobble... Continue reading
