E3 What are people all about?
This week Life Collective’s Michelle Cox sits down with Melbourne-based sports broadcaster and columnist Hamish McLachlan for the first instalment of a two-part chat.
This time round, Hamish tells how his early beginnings in sports commentating took him from the local scrub polo club to the Royal enclosure in the UK; his brushes with depression, and why interesting and interested people light his fire.
