Unexpected Passions

We all know Jonathan Franzen is a twitcher. But did you know Tom Hanks likes to collect 1940s typewriters? Or that Johnny Depp likes to play with dolls?

Sadly, Tom and the two Johnnies couldn’t join us, but Sam Pang has persuaded some almost as familiar faces to reveal their unlikely obsessions. In the first of these monthly events, writer–comedian Kate Langbroek shares her love of op shops and Adam Zwar (creator–star of Wilfred and Lowdown) confesses he’s cuckoo for cats.
