Sh*t matters!

Maree Delofski, Cath Simpson

Research output: Non-traditional research outputDigital or Visual products


Part two of a two-part audio documentary series. First broadcast by ABC Radio National on 16th August 2016.

Academic Cath Simpson’s broken toilet had her thinking about our cultural attitudes to human waste.

In this episode she asks, how we can use our waste for good?

We meet 23 year old primary school teacher, Jake Kirkwood, debilitated by irritable bowel for more than six years. A faecal transplant has transformed his life.

The program also canvasses the idea of faeces as fertiliser, explores how our sewerage systems are sources of important community health data and brings us some highly unusual artistic experimentation.
