Enriching

Both Richard Fisher and Sarah Kanowski have just the right interviewing technique, getting the best out of the people invited on the show. Many wow moments in the recent show featuring Kate Forsyth. If you’re bored of celebs, this is for you.

Excellent show that explores Australian identity

Excellent show with seasoned interviewers. As an Aussie living abroad, this podcast has helped me connect with home without having to be there. The stories are quintessentially Australian and delve deep into the Aussie psyche. A variety of topics and always a pleasant listen. Every episode is an amazing adventure, leading you places you didn’t know existed.
