‘Good morning, I’m battling a cold and locked in my house, but otherwise quite fine!’ says that familiar voice on the line from Sydney.
Some say you should never meet your heroes, and Annabel Crabb is one of mine. As the ABC’s Walkley Award-winning chief online political writer, Crabb has the unique ability to walk the line between impeccable professionalism and kooky personality. She can cook dessert for politicians (as in Kitchen Cabinet) while asking serious policy questions, and she pulls no punches in her columns and newsletters. Crabb is quick with a quip and sketches drama from dry details.
