100NO 443: Secrets of Australia’s oldest man with Janet Rowlings

Episode Summary

You have to go all the way back to episode 17 of 100 Not Out when we interviewed our very first centenarian on the podcast. Back then it was July 2013 and Dexter Kruger was 103

Little did we know that our first centenarian guest would go on to become the oldest man in the history of our country ever to live. 

Dexter lived to 111 years and 188 days, not only becoming the oldest man in Australia but the oldest living human being until his death on July 20 2021. 

Dexter was also the world’s oldest active author and you know what they say – behind every 111-year-old author is an incredible transcriber, and that transcriber slash ghostwriter and dear friend of Dexter’s is Janet Rowlings, who joins us again on 100 Not Out to celebrate his life and times. 

Janet helped co-write Dexter’s autobiography which was printed just before his death and arrived just 28 hours after he died.

You can purchase a copy of the book by sending a message to Dexter’s official Facebook page, where Janet and the team will look after you.

Janet was featured in the 110+ club which aired on the ABC. You can watch it here.
