People of Note - Brent Meersman

Rodney Trudgeon’s guest on People of Note this week is the author and journalist BRENT MEERSMAN. Brent is also co-editor of the news organisation Ground Up and his work has been published internationally. One of his latest books is called A Childhood Made UP – Living with my mother’s madness. The book has been described by Zapiro as “cathartic, insightful, funny and most of all, courageous” as it traces his mother’s battle with schizophrenia and his father’s alcohol-fuelled depression.
