Jellybean 45 with Andy Tagg


Worse things happen at sea. A charming man. A dapper chap. An adventurous fellow. It’s @andrewjtagg from in one of the funnier Jellybeans.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the Medic on one of those big cruise ships that sail around the world in an endless summer filled with wealthy people that do not have many summers left?

There is a reason that cruise ship doctor has a certain ring to it. It has a certain melo-dramatic potential. I think it’s because of the uniform. And the sex. Apparently there is an awful lot of sex. If Andrew were to write a FOAMed blog about being the ships doctor it might be called

Dr Andrew Tagg cruised for 4 years. He has been everywhere. He certainly looks the part. He sounds good too. His clear elocution and dry, restrained humour is quite the contrast to his interviewer.

Of course he was running away from something, the same thing I was running away from; a Blair-ite NHS with a 4 hour ED rule. (Blair; Form over Content every time.) (And a war criminal.) (Allegedly.)

Andrew is one of 4 writers on  He works in the very interesting “Western Suburbs” of Melbourne and also in the publicly funded aeromedical retrieval service called “Adult Retrieval Victoria”. We have a good wee chat about many things other than the fall-out from “Shore Leave”.


Have a listen. Have a chuckle.

So.... you see the little dots in the middle of the white line where the Typhoon will probably be on early Saturday am? That’s The Yaeyama Islands. That’s where we are. That’s where we will be early Saturday am. Mmmmm #typhoon
Rolling Kilns. Naha. Okinawa.
I’ve never seen a jet pass by this close at cruising altitude. I thought they usually travelled in the opposite direction at a significantly different altitude? Is that a #nearmiss

@wanderingsootball I used to travel with Sluggy all the time. He still comes on many trips but he is less of an exhibitionist these days. Or maybe he just didn’t want to steal all the limelight. I don’t know. He doesn’t talk much. But somehow I feel that Kuro and Sluggy might get on. He’s made of slugginess and slime. He’s not made of soot but he is a big fan of Spirited Away. Am I right in assuming that Kuro is in fact one of the very talented soot ball actors from the scenes in the boiler room with Kamaji, the Boilerman?
