Shame is a common part of our lives, but we’re fortunate because we suffer anonymously. The famous among us are not so lucky. So, I’ve decided to quiz them on what proverbial dirt they’ve kept hidden.



The older I get, the more I’ve started thinking about the past. Unfortunately, there are some things of which I am not proud. As I examined these experiences, I found myself pondering one question over and over: Do successful people feel shame?

More importantly, if they do, how have they managed to launch themselves into a very public career? The more I thought about it, I realised that maybe I was thinking about it the wrong way. Maybe successful people have used their shame to influence and push them.

I wasn’t sure if this was true, but I sure as hell wanted to find out, and Shame Feeder was the result. First up, I wondered what successful Australian Musician Pete Murray had to share on this subject.

Over the past eight months, I have sat down with successful business owners, musicians, comedians and all round entertainers and asked them the big question.

“What are you ashamed of?”
