Thank you, John Anderson, for sharing what appears to be erudite conversations between friends with us. I’ve found this podcast quite recently, and have so enjoyed the wisdom imparted with each discussion. I came to the podcast as an admirer of this fine man, which has been reinforced by this production.
Had Anderson been in the Liberal Party instead of the junior coalition partner he would have made an outstanding PM, possibly one of our best ever. His honest and thorough analysis of any subject is remarkable, and just a little has restored my faith in politicians.
A must listen podcast but…
Terrific interviews, introduced me to some truly insightful people and thinkers. Congratulations John and please keep them coming. Getting some production help would greatly improve audio eg most casts could really benefit from audio compression.
