Welcome to my blog. I’ve been posting my thoughts about life, faith and family here since November 2003. If you’ve got a spare day or two you can trawl through the archives to get an idea of where this blog has come from and where it’s going.
Who am I?
I’m Rodney Olsen, a husband, father and radio broadcaster.
I’m passionate about developing and communicating faith that connects with real life. I’m a follower of Jesus and am on a journey to discover how to live out a life that practises what he taught.
My day job
I joined 98.5 Sonshine FM as a full time staff member in May 1989. In May 1999, after 10 years full time work at Sonshine FM I left to join The Bible Society where I served as Bike for Bibles Coordinator for five years.
I returned to Sonshine FM in 2004 as host of the morning programme which includes a range of regular talkback guests and a variety of interviews. Past interviewees include Cadel Evans, Tim Costello, Brandi Carlile, Adam Young of Owl City, Mikey Robins, Julia Zemiro, Guy Sebatian, Damian Leith, Dean Geyer, Ross Wilson, Tommy Emmanuel, Jamie Durie, Marcia Hines, Guy Leech, Colin Buchanan, Jimmy Little, Mark Mitchell, Grahame Bond, Ken Duncan, Henri Szeps, James Morrison, Hugh Mackay and many others.
I was also a consultant and writer on two television programmes, screened on the Seven and Ten Networks.
On a more personal level
The major priorities in my life are my wife Pauline and our two children, Emily and James.
I’m a keen cyclist who has crossed Australia 5 times by bike as well as cycling in Canada and making 2 trips to cycle in India.
