NOW IN ITS 8TH YEAR, 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.
PRESENTED BY RICHARD FIDLER
Richard Fidler presents Conversations with Richard Fidler, an in-depth, up-close-and personal interview program broadcast across Australia on ABC Radio.
He’s interviewed prime ministers, astronauts, writers and scientists, but the program often features remarkable people who are unknown to the wider world. The program attracts a large listening audience around the nation and is the most popular podcast in Australia. Richard is the author of the best-selling book Ghost Empire; the story of his journey to Istanbul with his son Joe, to uncover the history of the lost civilization of Byzantium. In another life Richard was a member of Australian comedy trio The Doug Anthony Allstars (DAAS), which played to audiences all over the world.
Sarah Kanowski studied English at the University of Oxford, where she wrote a thesis on the Mosley family.
She presented Books and Arts on ABC RN and looked after Conversations when Richard Fidler was away. In 2018 Sarah joined the Conversations team permanently, and presents the program on Thursdays and Fridays.
