NOVA Entertainment has launched a new podcast, The Worst Day of Your Life, featuring real stories of people who refuse to let disaster change their lives and who strive to help others change their lives for the better.

In The Worst Day of Your Life, award winning journalist Glenn Daniel shares intimate conversations with people thrown into life’s worst moments through no fault of their own, only to emerge to do life’s best.

NOVA said that some of the voices on the podcast will be known while others will be new. However, each one will “take you on a journey you will never forget”. These include:

  • Gwen Cherne—the Defence expert who lost her military husband to suicide now campaigning for the care of veterans
  • Leila & Danny Abdallah—the couple heading a national campaign of forgiveness after losing three of their six children to a drunk, drugged and speeding driver
  • Patrizia Cassiniti—the woman driving workplace safety on building sites after a scaffold collapse killed her son
  • Shane Fitzsimmons—Australia’s disaster management expert driven to the point of quitting by a personal tragedy who now leads recovery for others
  • Jo Abi—the mother let down by experts when her son wanted to die, restores his passion for life and helps others facing the same situation.

“It’s been a privilege to work on this podcast with creator and director Matt Clark and Executive Producer Katie Jackson,” Daniel said in a statement.

“We’ve been humbled by incredible Australians who’ve faced life’s worst yet emerged to do life’s best. We know you’ll be inspired by their unforgettable stories.”

Having worked as a radio news journalist for more than 35 years, Daniel has worked at smoothfm 95.3, co-hosting the More Music Breakfast Show with Bogart Torelli since 2013.

The three-time winner of Commercial Radio Australia’s Best News Presenter was recognised with the Brian White Memorial Award for Excellence in Journalism in 2014 and released his autobiography, News Time – A Life in Radio, in March 2018.

With a career across multiple radio networks, Daniel was news director at 2SM before moving to Austereo as Sydney news director for 2Day FM and Triple M.

He spent four years as news journalist for WSFM before becoming group news director for ARN for the next decade. He was a presenter and producer for ABC News Radio before joining NOVA Entertainment in November 2012.

Follow The Worst Day of Your Life on Instagram and Facebook and make contact with the producers via these social platforms if you have a story, or know of one you would like to share on the podcast.

The Worst Day of Your Life launches on 11 May, with a new episode available every Tuesday, and is available on the NOVA Entertainment Podcast Network or wherever you get your podcasts.
