Podcast One (SCA)





A Plate to Call Home from Gary Mehigan
Sex & Life from Dr Nikki Goldstein

Grant Tothill, Head of Podcasting at SCA today announced two new exciting original podcasts ready to listen to from the PodcastOne app and PodcastOne website.

Announcing A Plate to Call Home with Gary Mehigan and Sex and Life with Nikki Goldstein, Grant said, “Podcasts are becoming more and more popular but there’s room for more original content podcasts made here in Australia. I’m proud to announce two new entertaining, engaging and informative podcasts to add to the PodcastOne Network.”

A Plate to Call Home

A Plate to Call Home is not a cooking podcast. Gary brings us the stories of his guests through his and their passion for food and its impact on their lives. In the first episode he talks to Tamsin who talks about leaving her corporate life to set up a farm in Gippsland, her daughter’s connection with the poultry and farm animals and setting up Tamsin’s Table. In the second episode he meets Tamil Refugees who hold regular Tamil feasts.

There will be 12 episodes in Series 1.

Sex & Life

Sexologist and relationship expert, Dr Nikki Goldstein’s Sex & Life addresses what she sees as a lack of credible and thoughtful discussion and information about sex. Looking at sex, relationships, marriage and intimacy, she seeks to answer her audience’s key questions: Am I normal? Am I doing it right?

Feeling that the podcasting medium gives her the opportunity to go places she is not able to using other media, in Sex and Life, Nikki acts as educator, wanting people to ask themselves what is it that works for them and how do they live their life.

The first episode introduces Nikki and starts her initial exploration of the two key questions. The second episode sees her take her producer Alex to a BDSM club to watch a Sunday afternoon rope tying practice session and meet a couple of regular girls who are members of the club.

There will be 12 episodes in Series 1.

Grant Tothill said “We are audio content experts, so podcasting is a natural fit for the SCA business. We are pleased that we are able to offer our clients a new way to reach their audiences. Compelling audio entertainment on demand is immersive, lean in content which offers our clients new and effective ways to reach their audiences.”

Announcing The Mentor, Grant Tothill Head of Podcasting for Southern Cross Austereo said, “Mark’s success as an entrepreneur and businessman shines through in his conversations between like- minded business owners.

with their new original podcasts. They will produce two series of 40 podcasts in 2018 and 2019, which will be released first on PodcastOne and then on itunes.

the podcasting world”, said Andy.

“I’m going to have to teach my grandma how to podcast, so the move does not come without its hurdles, but the excitement outweighs the challenges! We can’t wait”, said Hamish.

“We also can say things in unison”, said the boys together.
