Rank #2: Stuart MacGill

The champion Australian leg spinner, Stuart MacGill.

Now, I’d probably be happy to devote more of this podcast to cricket, but I’ve held off because I wanted to speak to a cricketer who thinks a little deeper about life and the world than your average test legend.

In cricketing terms, Stuart was an incredibly gifted leg spin bowler who turned the ball a mile and had a brilliant test average, and who just happened to come along at the same time as the greatest of all leg spinner bowlers, Shane Warne.

But MacGill never tried to compete with Warne. Warne was all bravado and glamour – whereas MacGill held his emotions in check. The facts are that MacGill is the seventh quickest in history to get 200 wickets – getting to the milestone faster than both Warne and the all time greatest wicket taker, Muttiah Muralitharan.

Outside of cricket, Stuart’s a voracious reader – famously reading 42 novels on a tour of Pakistan. He is politically aware – once boycotting a tour of Zimbabwe because he wasn’t comfortable with the Mugabe regime.

In 2000, he married the Australian actress Rachel Friend and the couple, who separated in 2013, have two children together.

Since he retired in 2008, he’s hosted a TV show about wine and been a coach for hire.

He’s had a few public ups and downs, but now he’s getting back to a good place and I encourage you all to follow his witty and polemical Twitter account @scgmacgill.

Rank #17: Bradley Trevor Greive

Podcast cover
Read more

One of the best things about moving to the US is that I’ve met so many great Australians.

That wasn’t the plan. But that’s how it’s worked out.

And one of the greatest of these Australians is the best selling author, wild-life documentarian and former Paratrooper, Bradley Trevor Greive.

BTG, as we call him, has sold 30 million books in 29 languages across 115 countries. The Blue Day Book is certainly what launched him, but more recently there’s been Penguin Bloom, which is being made into a movie starring Naomi Watts.

BTG’s also an animal expert. He used to be one of those rugged Australians who’d showcase animals on Chelsea Lately and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

These days he hosts documentaries for Animal Planet about bears. But before that and the best selling author stuff, he was Platoon Commander in the Australian army.

Me, BTG and one my cats sat down for this interview in my living room and I started by asking him when he was most happy.

Get The Blue Day Book by BTG on Amazon.

Rank #18: Kevin Rudd

Podcast cover

My guest is former Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd.

For those who live outside Australia, Kevin Rudd was Prime Minister of Australia from 2007 to 2010 and then briefly again in 2013.

The circumstances of his resignation in 2010 and reemergence in 2013 is a dramatic story and familiar to every Australian. And every Australian has an opinion on it. So if you like Shakespearean- style histories, then I invite you to do some research.

Kevin Rudd’s first memoir Not For the Faint-Hearted: A Personal Reflection On Life, Politics and Purpose is out now thanks to Pan Macmillan.

I chatted with him via Skype from Oxford, where he’d just spoken to some students and, as usual my first question was, “When were you most happy?”

Rank #19: Jane Caro

Podcast cover

Former advertising copywriter turned social commentator turned novelist Jane Caro is filled with wisdom. If you suffer anxiety or insecurity and want to turn your life around – then listen in.

I first came across Jane on what used to be The Gruen Transfer, then invited her to be on Agony, and was immediately bowled over by her clear thinking and the effortless way she gets her points across.

For those wanting to hear Jane speak beyond this interview and her regular spot on Sunrise can check her out when she MCs the Global Atheist Convention in February next year. There, she’ll be speaking alongside Salman Rushdie and Richard Dawkins.

Rank #20: Tim Ross (Rosso)

Today’s guest is the broadcaster and comedian, Tim Ross.

I made a show back in 2011 on the ABC called Agony Uncles – and Tim was literally the first person I approached to be on the show.

I’d been a fan of his since he was Triple J with his comedy partner Merrick Watts. And I’d followed him through his various radio and TV incarnations and felt that he’d be perfect for Agony Uncles as he had an always hilarious perspective on the Australian male.

These days he’s all about architecture and design – having made the hugely success ABC show, Streets of Your Town, while touring his live show Man About The House all over the world.
