The amazingly talented Casey Donovan is Mike’s guest this week. Since winning Australian Idol in 2004, Casey has gone on to win Deadly Awards, perform in the stage musical The Sapphires; both here and overseas and release some wonderful music.

Casey wrote a book about her life since Idol called Big Beautiful and Sexy, which is also the name of one of her singles, which has gone on to become an anthem for bigger women everywhere, including as we find out in Canada. She was a delight to talk to, and has some new music coming out later this year which is worth keeping an eye out for.

You can buy the songs ‘Big Beautiful and Sexy’ and ‘You Believed’ sampled in this episode on iTunes, or buy her book through New Holland Publishers.
