S1E60: Dr Chris Brown
Dr Chris graduated from the University of Sydney in 2001 with First Class Honours in vet science.
After practicing in Sydney’s North Shore as well as remote communities in the Northern Territory, a chance meeting in a pub with a media manager helped him land a presenting role on Harry’s Practice in 2003.
After that, he went on to win a Logie for Most Popular New Talent and write the best-selling book, The Family Guide to Pets.
Then, in 2008, came the all-conquering reality show Bondi Vet, which chronicled Chris’s life at a Bondi Junction clinic.
Along the way, there were shows for CBS and Animal Planet in the US before broadening his hosting palette to include The Living Room and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
During our chat, Dr Chris tells some glorious animal stories and recounts a botched meeting with Nelson Mandela.
As usual I started by asking Dr Chris, when he was most happy.
