LISTEN TO ALL SEASONS

ABOUT SEASONS 1, 2, 3 AND 4

Game Changers: Radio is a love letter to radio in the form of a weekly podcast. The show was shortlisted for Best Podcast in the 2016 Publish Awards.

In Season 1, our host Craig Bruce spoke to six of the best radio talent in Australia - Marty Sheargold, Chrissie Swan, Eddie McGuire, James Brayshaw, Sam Cavanagh and Mick Molloy

Season 2 was even bigger. We launched in July 2016 with an interview with Hamish Blake, and the season also featured other great Australian talents Matt Tilley, Amanda Keller, Fifi Box, Richard Stubbs and Tony Martin.

In Season 3, we ventured beyond our Australian shores to the United Kingdom, where in October 2016 Craig spoke to the best of the best in UK radio. He interviewed Christian O’Connell (host of Absolute Radio’s The Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show and partner with Hamish & Andy for the world’s first international radio simulcast), Ken Bruce (host of BBC Radio 2’s The Ken Bruce Show), Jamie Theakston (co-host of Heart London’s Breakfast with Jamie & Emma (Emma Bunton of Spice Girls fame)), Mike Toolan (co-host of Key 103’s Mike & Chelsea) and Nick Ferrari (host of LBC’s Breakfast, London’s #1 commercial talk show).

Season 4 launched in March 2017 and returned to Australian talent. We started the season with Tim Blackwell, and in the same week - in honour of International Women's Day 2017 - we released our interview with Wendy Harmer and our Women in Radio Playlist. The season also features Jamie Dunn, Robin Bailey, Ash Bradnam and Any Lee.

Thanks Craig for your podcast. As a complete rookie to the radio game (just started on breakfast radio 6 weeks ago) your podcast has been an invaluable resource. Its been great hearing from some of the best in the business! Really appreciate what you’ve put together. As a newbie its hard finding resources to help, this has been an invaluable tool for a rather niche profession!

Just listened to my first ever Game Changers: Radio. It was the Hamish Blake episode. I really enjoyed it. It had a lot of correlation to where I am currently sitting in radio.

I just want to say a massive thank you. That Game Changers episode has really resonated with me. Having Hamish, my idol from when I was about 12 talk about his beginnings which are like mine has really given me purpose going forward.

So thank you again. It really was something extremely special for me and an amazing eye opener.

I just wanted to let you know as someone who has worked in news talk radio for 19 years, as a journalist, presenter and programmer, I very much enjoyed listening to your Nick Ferrari podcast. I visited Global a few years ago and met James Rea, and LBC is a very impressive radio station. However I must say in some regards they have been trailing Australian news talk radio, we’ve been doing it for decades and very successfully with 3AW, 2UE and 2GB, but hearing Nick’s thoughts was enlightening and there certainly much we can learn.

It would be great to hear you do more on talk radio in the future.

Hi Craig, just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for your podcasts. As a regional announcer I would never have had access to such amazing advice. It has literally changed so many of my thoughts about broadcasting, it is inspiring and so amazing to have such a great source of knowledge to listen to at any time! Thanks again, keep ’em coming!

Craig Bruce sets the bar with in-depth personal interviews with radio talent in Australia, and continues the high quality here in the UK. His conversations with radio stars in the UK are a must listen for anyone in radio.

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.

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.
