On today’s show, we’re joined by Richard Davies. When you hear his voice, you may say “sounds familiar. He worked for ABC News Radio as a news reporter and host and worked in radio for 29 years.

Richard currently heads his own podcast consulting business and co-hosts the solutions journalism podcast “How Do We Fix It?” which has aired more than 300 episodes and is part of The Democracy Group.

He talked about lessons learned from his career, what characterized his reporting on both big events and personal finance and how his podcast celebrates fresh thinking on current topics. He gave multiple examples of the latter as related to views on policing and the origins of COVID-19.

He also gave practical advice for thoughtful speaking and for interviewing and saluted a reporter who he felt was doing great work.

Thank you as always for listening. You can find “How Do We Fix It?” here and wherever you get your podcasts.
