Alex Dysons and I try to create a podcast devoid of faff and untainted by triviality, and miss by a long shot. Like, not even close. But we do have interviews with comedians and footballers and news readers and listeners and it's only 25 minutes. Subscribe!
Want to hear me muddle through the big wide world of making a career change? I made a podcast called Seek Alternate Route - with my friends over at Seek, hence the clever name - and it's all about career change. It’s also in the business section, so if Dad asks I can say I’m in business now.
Yeah there was that time I was on triple j. Started at mid-dawns, did some Weekend Afternoons, bit of The Breakfast Show. There's was only one show I didn't present during those 7 years - Home and Hosed - and that will remain my greatest regret.
I created and co-directed a little web series about a marriage celebrant who happened to be gay. He kept having to work on other people's weddings instead of his own. And perhaps these other people shouldn't have been getting married. It stars Brendan Maclean, Tom Ballard, Veronica Milsom and a bevy of others.
Sometimes I have some thoughts that I will say. But only if it really strikes me. Not sure how many white middle aged male stand ups we need in the world. Yes - I'm a hero - for not doing the slightly terrifying thing.

There is a difference between radio and podcasting. And I helped Zan Rowe and Myf Warhurst find that out when we launched their hugely successful culture podcast Bang On.
In 2017 ARIA Award winning folk band All Our Exes Live In Texas went on tour, and I went with them. When we got back we recorded a podcast and then released it 9 months later - for no discernible reason but laziness.
In the lead to marriage equality, my partner Rhys Nicholson and I started a podcast to just chat about where we were at. Try and bring some humanity back to a debate that was increasingly treating LGBT citizens as a political football.
For about 5 years I've run Comedyish, where the best comics in the country come together and try out their new material ahead of the comedy festival season. It is a hugely successful club show, considering the jokes can be a little... fresh.
This one really stuck with people. We always get asked what happened to Making Friends. Basically we didn't have room to store all the craft anymore. It featured the likes of Mel Buttle, Matt Okine, Alex Dyson, Nikki Britton and more. I produced the whole shebang - and should've hired someone for lighting.
