Podcasts and radio

Along with Sarah Smith and Amy Charleston, I host Fan Grrrls. A podcast about personal relationships to AFL, it forgoes stats-chat and topical gossip or game recaps in favour of indulging the inner footy fan.

In 2018, I co-hosted Keep Up With Kish & Brodie, a weekly deep-dive into niche internet celebrity drama, as part of a podcast trial with Lipp Media.

From 2016 to 2017 I co-hosted the podcast Can U Not?, which was featured on the Apple Podcasts' 'New & Noteworthy' section and the Australian Audio Guide.

In 2016 I co-hosted a week of the Breakfasters show on RRR radio, then a solo interview show on The Downlow every Sunday for a month. Here's a highlight episode from those shows.

I’ve appeared as a guest on podcasts including Reply All, Stop Everything, North Mollywood, Deja-Review, Frugal Forever and Bachelor of Hearts.
