5/5

A fantastic, very interesting podcast.
fantastically interesting and perfectly produced, I love learning from this show!
I really like this podcast. The host asks great questions, like really gets in there with some of the guests. I just listedn to the episode with Andrew Harper, who does long treks across Australia with pack camels and it was just lovely. The conversations are educational, sometimes hilarious, and often deep. I don't know most of the people on here as I'm an American, but I know a great podcast when I hear it. Truly beautiful.
This was the first podcast I ever heard, a few years back, and set a high standard for all others. I love the variety of guests and topics. I've learned so much about the world. Thanks , Richard! My family would love to meet you some day.
We love listening to conversations with Richard Fidler. we are always surprised by the amazing stories different people have to tell. The best stories and the ones you find your self inthralled in seem to always be the ones you weren't going to download because they didn't seem as exciting as some others. Richard does a fantastic job getting people to open up.
And no, this is not Fidler's cousin writing. As a good Jesuit trained skeptic, seeker of wisdom, truth, knowledge and apple pie, I am loathe to admit it, but either this Aussie knows more than I do, or he is the quickest study since Noah was a life guard. His collection of guests is as varied as the English speaking world itself. From Tony Blair to an ex-motorcycle gang thug from Philadelphia, most of whom are flogging books or other media, no matter who it is, Fidler is the consumate pro. He talks their talk and knows their "stuff". His conversational manner, whether serious or humorous, is so easy going that it puts him in your living room with your friends, Good on ya, mate!
This is a fantastic podcast. Richard is an exceptional interviewer and as someone who often must interview people as part of my career as a filmmaker, I find myself taking many lessons from his example. I also appreciate the variety of subjects in this podcast and am learning a tremendous amount of social, historical, and cultural information. It's been a source of inspiration to me as well; An absolute gem!
Great guests, brilliantly interviewed! You can tell the host loves his job, and the show is a delight.
This is one of my favorite podcasts because Richard Fidler is such a great interviewer, and he finds such interesting people to have on the show. He treats them respectfully but not too formally, and asks questions that really challenge them to explain themselves. Non-Aussies will also enjoy this thoroughly, because the stories are so human and accessible.
