Andrew Quilty

Andrew Quilty

Andrew Quilty is the recipient of nine Walkley Awards, including the Gold Walkley, for his work on Afghanistan, where he has been based since 2013. He has also received the George Polk Award, the World Press Photo Award and the Overseas Press Club of America award for his investigation into massacres committed by a CIA-backed Afghan militia. August in Kabul is his first book. His second book, This is Afghanistan, will be published in late 2023.

Anthony Cooper

Anthony Cooper

The author of the best-selling Darwin Spitfires, Anthony Cooper is a retired high school teacher living in his hometown, Brisbane. Dispatch from Berlin is his seventh book, all but one of which explore stories about Australian airmen of the Second World War. This reflects not only his academic background as a student of history, but also his lifelong obsession with aeroplanes, aviation and aviators, an obsession which he has fed by taking to the skies as a recreational pilot—previously in sailplanes, but now in light sport aircraft. 

Steve Austin

Steve Austin

Steve has presented programs for ABC Radio & Television for thirty years. He has focused primarily on public affairs with a political bent. An interest in Art and what it says about the artist and the audience he believes that Brisbane writer Melissa Lukashenko got it right when she wrote “the audience gives us their trust & we give them new eyes”. Steve aims to approach public affairs from a different angle and draw out the unexpected from guests. He has interviewed every Australian Prime Minister from John Howard to the Present day. He declines to interview celebrities as they tend to be predictable whilst the interesting stories come from unexpected people.
