How do you compile a definitive list of this year’s movers, shakers and change-makers? In this episode of Good Weekend Talks, we look at the annual Who Mattered issue of the magazine – specifically, how we assembled this roll-call of extraordinary people.
For the past three years, we’ve compiled a roster of impressive Australians who have done something in the past 12 months – by word or by deed – to make this country better. We select people who improve the lives of others, or give us hope or joy, or make us laugh or cry, or pull off something so out of left field that it floors us all.
It’s no easy thing, choosing who will be included and who will be left out, and with that in mind Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland and senior writer Konrad Marshall discuss the highs and lows of coming up with this year’s Who Mattered list – taking you behind the scenes of those agonising decisions.
