    Interesting topics but the way the presenters respond to callers and writers who express opinions that differ to their own is so rude.

  • Love love love! But please title your shows

    Hey Hilary and crew! Ive just turned 30 this year, the year ABC turned 100. love Life Matters and have been listening to you for a couple of years now. I can see myself an avid listener til the day I die! So I’ve got a good few decades left in me. What I might suggest is that it’s hard to know where to write in while you’re on air. Is there a forum for people who can’t chime into the episode but have thoughts/questions etc when they can’t listen while on air? Thanks so much, Love what you do!

  • Great current topics warmly covered!

    This is a wonderful program. It has lots of good information on a very wide range of subjects and the experts interviewed are fantastic. I like the human element that is introduced by the people who ring in and also some of the topics covered. The issues covered are usually very alive in the community and so it is a great service. more
