In this Cultural Icons interview, dynamic entrepreneur, environmentalist and change-maker Bob Harvey talks with David Slack about his “ripper life so far”, from his newspaper beginnings to founding his ‘Mad Men’ style Auckland advertising agency in the early 1960’s; from his significant involvement in the political campaigns of two New Zealand prime ministers (Norman Kirk and David Lange) to becoming the mayor of Waitakare City. 

 This is an intriguing interview which weaves together Bob’s biographical history, conspiracy theories, personal revelations and philosophical insights.
