Accidental Podcaster Fiona Reynolds On Her Hit Show, Accidental Celebrity
In her long career as a journalist, Dr. Fiona Reynolds reported on the Thredbo landslide, interviewed Bruce and Denise Morcombe, who sacrificed their privacy to appeal for help in the search of the son Daniel, and spoke with Rosie Batty, who became the face of change in the move against domestic violence after an unfathomable tragedy.
“I had seen many, many people throughout that time suddenly go from being anonymous to an overnight headline; their lives poured over, their personal lives made public.” says Reynolds.
“And I'd started to wonder whether these people had anything in common, whether there were any similarities, and how their experiences may have differed.
The idea became her thesis, and led her to interviewing ordinary people who became household names in Australia. When her thesis was complete, she knew she wanted to share these stories.
