Love this pod!
I’m in the US, but I visited Australia in 2000- 2001. I started listening to this pod because I’m an Australophile and missed it but after the 1st 2 episodes I was hooked! The various interview subjects are fascinating and I learn so many things about people I would have never heard of. The questions and conversation are great and I look forward to each episode! Thank you & keep up the excellent work!
