Tom Tilley was just 10 years old when he began speaking in tongues. Best known for hosting Hack on triple j, interviewing everyone from prime ministers to pop stars, Tom Tilley grew up in a strict Pentecostal family where alcohol, ‘fornication’ outside of marriage, and even dancing, were forbidden.

On this episode of No Filter, Tom speaks candidly about his childhood, his life-changing decision to quit the faith at age 21, and other honest stories from his new memoir, Speaking in Tongues.


With thanks to Tom Tilley.

His book Speaking In Tongues is available now at all good bookstores thanks to Harper Collins Australia.
