Talking radio... Game Changers: Radio Season 4

Ten months ago we started with one podcast. We launched Game Changers: Radio in April 2016. Marty Sheargold kicked off Game Changers all those months ago. Since then, we have produced three seasons. Season 1 and Season 2 featured some of the best radio professionals in Australia. Season 3 ventured abroad and told the stories of the best in the United Kingdom.

Season 4 is back in Australia and episode one will be released Monday 6 March 2017. Craig Bruce has talked to six more Australian radio game changers.

Episode 1 features the great Tim Blackwell from NOVA’s Kate, Tim & Marty. Wendy Harmer, Jamie Dunn, Robin Bailey, Ash Bradnam and Andy Lee make up the rest of Season 4.

Season 5 will start shortly after Season 4 wraps up in April, and will feature the Rising Stars in Australian radio... the future Game Changers.

Now for the writing… The Garret Podcast Season 2

A garret is a small space, typically on the top floor of a building. It provides solitude for an artist to create. The Garret podcast is a small space where the best writers writing in Australia share the stories of how they create.

We partnered with the State Library of Victoria, Swinburne University, Readings and Writers Victoria to create The Garret. Season 1 featured interviews with authors Amie Kaufmann and Jay Kristoff, John Marsden, Kerry Greenwood, Andrew Rule, A. S. Patric, Toni Jordan and Graeme Simsion.

You can find everything from season one at thegarretpodcast.com.

Season 2 begins this week. Our first episode features the rock stars of children’s literature, Andy and Jill Griffiths.

Carmel Bird, Tony Birch, Alicia Sometimes, Jeff Sparrow, Anita Heiss and Leigh Hobbs. We record our interviews at the State Library, but Leigh invited us in to his own personal garret, his Williamstown studio, to record the interview. It’s fascinating to witness where ideas take shape.
