In this episode of Dear 21-Year-Old Me, with guest Doug Weller.

  • We go back in time to 1977, when our guest, Doug Weller, turned 21, and look at what was happening in the world, and closer to home back then.

  • Doug reflects on his experiences growing up in Queensland, and how he took some chances that came his way and ended up in regional radio. 
     
  • We talk about how Doug backed himself and forged a career in journalism including as a foreign correspondent and his time reporting from the US during a period of profound change.

  • Doug looks back on his life and the decisions he's made that have changed his - and his family's life - including welcoming his two great children and guiding them as they've grown.

  • Doug talks about sticking to his principles, being true to yourself, and what he's learned along the way professionally and personally.
