Just wanted to pop you a note to say I love the podcasts – good for the soul when you’re stuck amongst the chaos daily. It’s nice to know other people have been through the same thing decades on decades!
Hey there Craig, just wanted to email and tell you how much I am enjoying the podcast. I’m loving hearing about the work ethic, motivations and programming thinking that goes into the various shows.
One of the things I love about the podcast is the way it makes me think more about what I do each day and why do things certain ways. It really gets the brain ticking.
Thanks again and keep up the good work!
‘Love them all! I’m doing more and more radio now I’ve retired from playing and I’m learning so much from these podcasts.
I love the fact that every successful radio personality have put in so many hours of hard work, so similar to life as an athlete. Awesome job.’
‘I am loving Game Changers. So much to learn from listening to you and all your guests.
Really incredible stuff. Thank you for sharing it with us all’.
‘In all seriousness, it has been a very long time since a podcast switched me off for almost an hour.
I couldn’t get enough, you totally had me. Amazing.’
‘Loving Episode 1 – great conversation and the trust he [Marty] has in you allows for some candid and poignant moments’.
‘Just finished listening to CB’s Game Changer podcast with Marty Sheargold. FREAKING AMAZING.
Download it because it’s incredibly entertaining and interesting. Listen to it because it’s a masterclass on how to make a podcast’.
‘What I like is the natural flow of conversation. Radio has the strict parameters of a 3 minute break, so it is refreshing to hear Marty talk in more than short soundbites.I loved the balance between the personal and professional, and thought you gave him the space to open up but helped him along when needed.Game Changers: Radio really is must listen audio, genuinely wishing I can binge listen’.
‘Game Changers: Radio is the ‘On The Couch’ of the radio industry. Craig Bruce, with his outstanding reputation and career, has the trust of his guests. This allows them to open up and answer his conversational questions with honesty and ease. Craig takes the listener on a journey during the podcast, reflecting on the careers of the best in the business.
Insight into the highest profile radio announcers in Australia is worth it’s weight in gold. The podcast is entertaining, intriguing and insightful – delving into the minds of the most creative people. Can’t wait for the next one!’
‘The podcast left me wanting to hear the personal stuff. You knew it was coming, and Craig doesn’t disappoint.You know that Craig already knows the answers to the most personal of questions yet asks them in such a generous way as to set Marty up to really shine.Even through some of Marty’s darkest tales of radio self destruction, you want to cheer him on and let him know that things will turn out alright’.
‘Great podcast mate. Really well done. Quality interview’.
