In Conversation with RJ Mitte

RJ “Walt Jr./Flynn White” Mitte is coming to speak in Melbourne and I’m going to do my best to facilitate his Q&A without blushing too much.

RJ is not only an actor but an activist and champion for people living with disabilities and I’m really excited to hear what he’s going to talk about.

The event’s happening at 7:30pm on Wednesday 14th October at the Athenaeum Theatre. You can book tickets here.

33 – Erik Jensen


After another bit of a delay and SOME JOLLY CRAZY HAPPENINGS in Australian politics, we’re back. Hello.

Erik Jensen is the definition of “precocious”. He’s in his mid-twenties and he’s already won a Walkley Award and he’s responsible for the launch and editing the highly-respected Saturday Paper – a weekly, centrist newspaper dedicated to long-form narrative journalism.

Plus he’s written a critically-acclaimed biography of artist Adam Cullen, he likes cool music and is very funny. What an arsehole.

In this chat Erik tells me about his beginnings in and passion for journalism, the over-arching philosophy behind TSP, the media and bias, the Abbott government’s “paucity of ideas”, leaks and opinion polls and just where things might go with Malcolm Turnbull as our new Prime Minister.

WATCH: Fully Furnished


Behold! The web series pilot that Tommy Dassalo and I have been working on for the past 7 or so months.

It is our Chinese Democracy.

We think it’s dumb and funny and original and I’d love you to watch it and maybe even share it amongst your friends and loved ones if you get the chance.
