Latest Podcasts

Two new podcasts this week:

Podcast 43/2014: Maude Garrett
The host of the LA-based syndicated weekend radio show The Hot Hits talks to Mediaweek about life covering the entertainment business in Hollywood. Maude Garrett talks about her best and worst movie junket trips and reveals the names of celebrities that play along with her gags and those that don't. She also talks about her dating challenges, her LA colleagues, her time spent in Australia recently on air with Matty Acton and she details her success in building her Geek Bomb online business.

Podcast 44/2014: Clive Mathieson
Mediaweek went inside the editor's office at The Australian on Friday as Clive Mathieson talked about a busy week that included the 50th anniversary of the launch of the newspaper, the abolition on the carbon tax and the shooting down of MH17. There were plenty of other subjects covered too including the paper's politics, how reporters could make a mark and it was the meeting of two newspaper nerds as Brenden Wood talked collecting newspapers with Mathieson.
