This morning, I drove to the big city, Horsham, Western Victoria, 300 kms west of Melbourne. I used to work at the ABC Radio here as morning show producer, whenever Sue Dunstan, the Show Producer, needed me. Today, I was in the studio as an interviewee, to answer Matt Tribes’ questions about Everest and the tragedies that took place this pre monsoon season.
