September 29: The Greatness of Dads

To find out more about the man who is a ‘son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love’ Kirsten Matthew interviewed 31 big kids and small kids from nine countries about their dads. The line-up includes some well-known locals such as former Wallabies player Peter FitzSimons who recounts his dad supplying his schoolboy-rugby teams with oranges, and renowned chef Matt Moran who credits the hours spent helping his dad out on the family farm with instilling a strong work ethic in him. Listen in to hear more of this fascinating story.
