This is a fascinating insight into Indigenous oral histories and scientific discoveries. The implication is that we would do well to learn from them about how to listen, how to value the wisdom of our elders, and how to learn from the past. Thank you Richard, Patrick and ABC.

I had this on auto download when Richard was a constant. He is an intelligent guy and his on the run questions were generally what I was wondering along the way. Not so much anymore, too white too old too male I guess eh abc

I would highly recommend Conversations, especially Richard Fidlers interviews, as not only are you hearing the facts from the journalist or victim ect, but Richard won’t just listen and add opinions or comment on an event, often he will point out a detail, and once it’s talked about, the podcast...Read full review »

So great but please mark repeat episodes.

Nothing against Richard, and I thoroughly enjoy his episodes too. I just find Sarah’s interview style much more inquisitive and less invasive. She also resists talking about herself, something that Richard can’t seem to stop himself from doing.

Really interesting content and great guests but Richard Fiedler is sooooo annoying, patronising and old fashioned. Almost can’t listen to this due to him.

After listening to the episodes on the royal commission and mortgage lending, I was gobsmacked by the lack of actual knowledge of the industry discussed. Might be a good idea to talk to people in the industry rather than go off one persons opinion to understand it. All the figures bandied around...Read full review »

I am unsubscribing as there are now too many repeats and Richard is frequently not interviewing.

I used to really like this podcast but now I’m suffering deja vu with the amount of repeated episodes... would be great if repeated episodes were marked as repeats

Five Stars when it’s Richard interviewing. He’s a master conversationalist, truly gifted! I wish each episode would say which interviewer it has, so you don’t have to download episodes you don’t want.

I wasn’t sure that I would like listening to this type of podcast but I really enjoy it! The guests have really interesting and diverse stories. My favourites so far have been the interviews with Dr Denish Palipana, RFD nurse Louise Burton and the story about Australia’s first policewoman,...Read full review »

Would be great if episode were played in chronological order or have the choice.

This episode beats them all! How’s that for an immigration story... This kid has overcome so much and speaks like a true Aussie, because he is! Such a wonderful young man with such a great story and family! It is an absolute honour to have you as part of us, it truly is

Love this podcast, but please just let Richard do all the episodes!! His interview style is far superior to any of the others on the podcast.

loved for years, podcast is the greatest. Love the variety. Snappy little intersting stories, I've often looked for more detail after listening. thanks

Listened to the Space Gandalf episode today, I don’t usually write reviews but it was fantastic, highly recommended.
Nadnerb44 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/16/19
Stopped listening because of the son. Just keeps interrupting and thinks he’s a comic really irritating. The old man should be left to talk a lot more.
yela fella via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/12/19
Hosts have an amazing ability to draw out a story. Highlights that everyone has a story of interest, but it’s all in the telling
someoneotherthanme via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/19
What a great informative conversation about the real life of s soldier of WW2, post war, ups and downs of family life inherited perhaps by being a soldier. We all take freedom for granted now though no one cannot enjoy what we are enjoying without the sacrifices made by those brave soldiers. I...Read full review »

Possibly the best Conversation I have ever listened to. I was riveted, what an extraordinary story.
H.Shaddy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/13/19
Well done James & Jimmy
Howellsie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/10/19
Sami Shah's Shutup was excellent - a detailed attempt at teasing out just what free speech really is, why it's important, and how it can be abused, ranging from Ancient Greece to the present day. He talks to people from all over the political spectrum.

SHUTUP 01 I’m not sorry.. this podcast annoyed me!! Not what is expected from this usually outstanding podcast series
Susan EH via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/06/19
Richard knows the answers before he asks the questions
175setyT via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 06/04/19
Constructive criticism following! We are new to podcasts & loved the first few we listened to - so informative. Then we tried listening to quite a few others, but your voices were racing so quickly, we found it most unpleasant & turned off !! Has the audio been sped-up at all ? PLEASE slow...Read full review »

Rarely an interview that isn’t interesting. Especially enjoy Richard’s subtle intellect and interviewing style.
Missenri via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/29/19
Agree very much with Please mark repeats. Otherwise excellent podcasts, among the best in the country
Moliagul via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/24/19
I love these podcasts. I now live in London but this is still my most listened to podcast series. And I’ve been sharing them far and wide. Thank you and keep up the great work.
joevejojo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/08/19
I’m a long term listener and love the extended time each guest is afforded. Richard, and recently Sarah and Hamish all do a fantastic job. Thank you!
StJam via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/08/19
This was my first subscribed podcast and is still my first choice for my daily trip to work.. Richard asks all the questions I was just hoping he’d ask how does he do that?
MH and BH via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/07/19
Love the variety of the guests on this show. Always great stories and all the hosts - Sarah, Richard and Hamish - are so humble and respectful and really skilful at allowing and encouraging their guests to tell their own stories in their own way. Sarah is my favourite as she doesn’t interrupt or...Read full review »
FionaPeru via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/07/19
I used to listen to Conversations religiously when Richard was a regular. His humanity, brilliant intellect and curiosity is irreplaceable. I have listened to a few podcasts by Hamish and have enjoyed them. I haven’t quite warmed to Sarah. She has a lovely manner but lacks ease and spontaneity....Read full review »

I absolutely love these podcasts. However as an avid long term listener I find it frustrating when episodes are repeated but aren’t marked as repeats on the podcast. The length of these shows are perfect for my morning walks with my dogs. Love the variety of topics. Keep up the good work!

This is great!!!!!
Olipopz via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/28/19
Listening to Jeff & Stan’s voices was like a symphony to my ears. The content opened my eyes. Being a new Australian, I am learning the history, the good & the bad, of my new country and this has given me great starting points to dig deeper. Being of mixed heritage as well, some of what Stan...Read full review »
Joe pig via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/25/19
One of the best podcasts out there, only gripe is that old episodes are presented as new and they do not identify the episode as a repeat, really frustrating if you are a long term listener.
MrKosturkov via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/23/19
The conversation with Stan Grant, so thoughtful, heartfelt and measured. I really enjoyed it!!
Angelaxnchen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/19
I would love to hear more from Simon - what a fascinating interview. Also must pay homage to our interviewer Richard who has that rare ability to really listen to what his guest is saying and respond appropriately so that the conversation blossoms. Rae
Rae Valerie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/23/19
What a salve for the soul listening to such an interesting human challenging us all to think about our choices based on more the a box of rules - whatever that box may be called.
thomashobbsg8gd via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/19/19
Podcast of the year! Simon Longstaff is an amazing human! Could hear him speak for hours. Pleeeease have him back again. Well done Richard and thanks ABC.
Fredkle via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/16/19
I love this podcast 9 out of 10 times but please Sara pull back from the mike a little as it’s picking up little mouth noises that take away from you’re smooth voice and the great interviews you do consistently.
petie66 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/16/19
Richard and Sarah (and recently Hamish) do the most amazing job and drawing out stories from the people the converse with. Even if the topic is not of particular interest, I'm still immersed and mesmerized by the conversation. Love it, thank you
Lil_Hobo via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/14/19
Thanks, Hamish...loving the interviews! You have a great style. Really like Richard too...such a great show..
sushimonster234 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/09/19
Absolutely loved Richards conversation with Author Candice Fox. Needless to say I now have a tiny girl crush on Candice. What a funny, interesting and caring person she is. Celine Dion? AMEN sister!
Sara C J via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/08/19
Have been a loyal listener for years but switched off when Richard was on extended leave. Found Hamish’s interviews hard to listen to and is it just me or are they running out of really interesting material/interviewees? Sorry Hamish but if you ever replace Richard full time, I won’t be tuning in.
TrueSelf via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/07/19
Highly recommend this podcast. The interviewers are brilliant and easy to listen to. There’s always another great conversation with some fascinating person you may or may not know. And thoroughly enjoy learning more about them.
Katster-01 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/04/19
Must be one of the most interesting book release interviews I’ve heard in recent months. Excellent interviewer, interviewee and wonderful reflective thoughts on Australia’s marvellous contribution to the women’s suffrage movement. A far cry from our current contributions to global political...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Conversations for years and still find it fascinating.

Love your conversations, Hamish. You’re a worthy successor/alternative to the ‘master’, Richard. Brilliant, thank you!
