Richard Aedy presents the award-winning Life Matters Monday to Friday on ABC Radio National.

The program covers social issues and everyday life: work, education, family, relationships, children, health and older Australians.

Richard's interviews chart the course of a changing Australia. As well as our economy, he examines where we live and how - our ageing population; sense of community; adoption of technology and evolving cultural mix.

Richard also draws out stories from listeners and interviews ordinary people who have been in extraordinary situations. The result is a lively and compelling show.

Before beginning on Life Matters in 2006, Richard presented the Media Report and Radio National's technology show, The Buzz. He spent 10 years covering the fast-moving areas of science, health, technology and the environment, both at the ABC and before that at the BBC in London.

Richard began his career in New Zealand after going to university in Auckland. He grew up in Sydney and Canberra.

Richard is married with two children. He lives in Sydney.
