Paul & Lise's Epic Chat With Andrew 'Twiggy' Forrest

Celebrating great West Australians has been the theme with Paul & Lise in the lead-up to WA Day.

On Friday, they spoke to one of the most celebrated West Aussies ever.

He was 2017’s WA Australian of the Year, appointed an officer of the Order of Australia, involved in the Minderoo Foundation which focusses on Indigenous education, he’s a non-executive chairman and former CEO of Fortescue Metals Group and, really, he’s a philanthropic heavyweight.

He also saved his beloved Western Force.

Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest.

For the time we had with Twiggy, the ground Paul & Lise covered was massive, but what struck us the most was the stuff we didn’t know about him – where did his sense of justice come from, his childhood, his view on failure and his reaction to being asked whether he’s got his eye on the prime ministership.

Check out the vid up top.
