Deaths

‘Reader, I married him’ is among the world’s most famous literary quotes. Why? Marriage is one of the most life-changing of events, rivalled only by births and deaths – our entry and exit from this world.

Comedian George McEncroe gets serious about these milestones – and how they can transform us – with the help of guests who’ll share their personal and professional experiences. George will apply her signature wit as she dives deep into the conversational waters, navigating the big issues from all angles.

Joining us for Death will be Larin Sullivan, Fabian Dattner and Molly Carlile.

Portrait of George McEncroe

George McEncroe

George McEncroe is the CEO and founder of Shebah, Australia's ridesharing service for women. While trying to safely get her four kids where they needed to go and support her family as a single mum, she came up with an idea for a business: ridesharing that allowed an all-women fleet of drivers to earn income whenever suited them, and that provided worry-free transport for women and children. Now that she's turned her idea into a reality, she's added CEO to the list of roles on her resumé, which include stand-up comedian, breakfast radio host, ABC producer and more.
