Richard Bruinsma – A Taste For Politics

Image source: IN Noosa Magazine

From journalist to media advisor, John Caruso talks with Richard Bruinsma about his taste for politics on the Conversations in Noosa podcast.

My next guest has been a journalist for many decades, many would remember him as a reporter on Seven Local News. He then took on a role as media advisor with controversial MP Peter Slipper, the former member for Fisher.

Richard Bruinsma tells me that there were times when the avalanche of phone calls into Mr Slipper’s office was so great, that he was instructed not to answer the phones.

We talk about Richard’s time with Mr Slipper in the podcast you’re about to hear as well as Richard’s own run at politics, where he ran as an independent for a state seat in 2017.

Listen to the podcast now.
