Andrew Leigh created The Good Life because he wanted the chance to stop, sit down with someone and just chat about what drives them, inspires them, interests them and why. For five years, Andrew and guests have been covering issues such as friendship, mental health, success, finding identity and how to accept it. He has chatted with experts in their field, ranging from one of the biggest living names in philosophy Alain de Botton, to Bruce Pascoe, author of award-winning ‘Dark Emu’. He has spoken with athletes like Craig Foster, and former Prime Ministers Julia Gillard and Malcolm Turnbull. He has talked to community builders like Astrid Jorgensen, founder of pub choir and scientists Alan Finkel and Michelle Simmons. We asked him a couple of questions about the show, check out his answers.
