ABC TV’s Meet the Mavericks is an interview series featuring some of Australia’s most iconic artists, performers, thinkers and cultural leaders. Each episode sees two of these creative talents (and troublemakers) come together to compare notes and talk intimately about their view of the world, their passions, what inspires them, what drives them and how they channel this into their creative process.
