'Consider the Lobster' was inspired by David Foster Wallace's essay of the same title. Fascinated by lobsters, I take on a journey that starts from the stalls of Melbourne busy Victoria Market and takes me straight into an adventure that includes Sardinian wisdom, lobster police, a protective German shepherd, Jean Paul Sartre, the B-52’s and religious enlightenment.
I created this piece after pitching my idea to Radiotonic (ABC Radio National).
