In this lunchtime podcast, you’ll meet some of advertising’s most influential and interesting people. If nourishing your mind tickles your pickle, relax, get your napkin out and spend 20 minutes going nowhere.
Sami Shah. Broadcaster. Comedian. Stephen Fry’s best friend
It was worth the wait for our next ep. Meet Sami Shah, ex CD of Ogilvy’s Karachi and the first man in history to delay the taping of Stephen Fry’s global hit quiz show Qi. From what it’s like to have a loaded gun pointed at your head to being called a curry muncher by a racist cult who pay very good Christmas bonus’, you’ll love, love, love the ridiculously talented storyteller, Sami Shah.
Luke Wallis. Head of Lifestyle*. And the man who interviewed Mick Jagger.
Ever wondered what it would be like to be this close to Mick’s lips? To do small talk with a hungover Matt Damon? To witness Meatloaf’s PA wipe his nose for him? Luke Wallis has chatted with them all, and had time to write a book featuring the legends of Aussie rock, from Michael Hutchence to The Angels.
Forgot the ‘Rona. Spend 20 minutes with Luke, and all will be well in your world once more.
*whatever that means.
20 Minutes To Nowhere Summer Special
Wondering what to do this summer? Relax. Listen to some of 2019’s favourite moments in the 20 Minutes to Nowhere Summer Special. You’ll hear about Mel Kerr hiding inside a dog suit as bagpipe players get naked, the wonderful Cezary Skubizewski muse about life and music, how Nic Desira swam the English Channel and so much more. So slip slop slap, lay your towel on the sand, pop the buds in and go absolutely nowhere.
Lisa Moro. Senior Producer. Child prodigy. Olympian.
What does it take to be an Olympic gymnast at just 14? To perform before a global audience in the hundreds of millions. To be a perfectionist, only to have your dream ended by injury at 16? And then to chat about it over misschu chicken salad, years later? You’ll do backflips after having lunch with the truly amazing, most wonderful ever, Lisa Moro.
Alex Wadelton. An honest man in advertising
If you’ve ever despaired at the world, and wondered how to fix it, have a vegie curry with Alex Wadelton. He’s an Independent Creative Director, and, annoyingly, a chronic over-achiever. Alex co-campaigned against the Woolies plastic Ooshies phenomenon and co-created the Nicky Winmar statue, forever immortalising an iconic moment in race relations in Australia. Intelligent, passionate and motivating, prepare to have your life challenged.
Nic Desira. The man who swam the English Channel
Have you ever swum to France? No, same here. Ever wanted to? No, same again. Then again, you and I are not art director, elite athlete and wonderful person, Nicholas Desira. He swim the English Channel in Force 5 conditions in the middle of the night. If you’ve ever been slapped on the head by a wave, or harboured big life goals and don’t know how to achieve them, don’t miss getting waterlogged with this amazing man.
