Cheryl is joined by Adam Courtenay to discuss his book, The Ship That Never Was – an entertaining and rollicking story of James Porter, an original Australian larrikin whose ingenuity, gift of the gab and refusal to buckle under authority make him an irresistible anti-hero who deserves a place in our history.
