ABC Talks:  A Conversation with Richard Fidler about Conversations

Richard Fidler’s Conversations has become one of Australia’s most loved radio programs and is Australia’s most downloaded podcast.

Over the last twelve years Richard has developed a singular approach to interviewing, combining deep research with immediate empathy to produce a program which is never less than compelling.

Conversations draws you deeper into the life story of someone you may, or may not, have heard about – someone who has seen and done amazing things.

Richard has interviewed prime ministers, astronauts, writers and scientists, but the program often features remarkable people who are unknown to the wider world.

It’s time someone had a conversation with Richard Fidler.

Favourite interviews, the disasters, the how, the why and the art of Conversations:  this will be a broad ranging and revelatory conversation conducted by fellow ABC host James Valentine.

Richard is the author of the best-selling books Ghost Empire; the story of his journey to Istanbul with his son Joe, to uncover the history of the lost civilization of Byzantium; and Saga Land¸ co-written with his friend, Kari Gislason.  In another life Richard was a member of Australian comedy trio The Doug Anthony Allstars (DAAS), which played to audiences all over the world.

Audiences can expect a never-before-heard insight into the most popular broadcast interviewer in Australian history in this special live show experience.
