Peter FitzSimons

Listen to Peter FitzSimons

He has interviewed everyone from President George Bush Snr to Sir Edmund Hillary to every Australian Prime Minister since Gough Whitlam. He is also a popular after-dinner speaker and the only Wallaby sent from the field against the All Blacks — unjustly, he swears.

In conversation with Angela Pippos about his book, A Simpler Time, Peter speaks candidly about lost love, the death of his mother, and his attempts to resist This Is Your Life.
