Richard Fidler began presenting his Conversations program while employed at 612 ABC, Brisbane. The show is heard each weekday around Australia on ABC Local Radio and re-re-broadcast on ABC Radio National. Each day’s program is also podcast, making it available to anyone anywhere in world with a digital device. As the program's website notes, 'Conversations is an immersive experience. The format is simple: an hour spent in the life of someone else. Stories from scientists, carers, musicians and philosophers; from boxers, prisoners, princes and prime ministers. Some strange, some sombre, some funny; some mind-bending and many, unforgettable.'
