Conversations as they should be

I reckon without doubt the ABC conversations are the cream of podcasts. All the anchors know their stuff, guests and their topics are intriguing and as a listener it is so easy to be engaged. Invariably the conversations are informative, the participants empathetic, questions & observations are shared equally and as a listener I usually feel better for having been part of the event. Richard F of course is the gold standard but all other presenters are in the same league.
