My friend Richard Utting

Coming up 4 years ago, I was so pleased when my old friend, law school and legal colleague Richard Utting – former Soldier, Lawyer, Broadcaster and Mayor of Fremantle – agreed to sit with me and make a podcast about his life and times.

Thinking fondly of Richard just now, as many have been over the past number of weeks, I sat and listened again to our interview.

In case you missed the podcast then, here it is again.

Thank you for all the memories, Richard. And thank you for getting in and getting things done when it mattered. Thanks for taking on life.

More of Richard’s exploits may be found in his memoir OUT OF SIGHT: Reflections on an accidental life.
