Tom Merritt could easily be mistaken as the godfather of podcasting. His long-running Cnet show “Buzz out Loud” was one of the first true success stories of the burgeoning medium and has led to Tom’s creation and involvement in dozens since.
Today he produces & hosts one of the most successful crowdfunded series on the internet, ”The Daily Tech News Show”, but behind the scenes he’s quietly becoming one of our generation’s most revered science fiction authors. Join us as we chat about Tom’s passion for creative writing, his process and how he possibly borrows one of his character’s time-travelling spaceships to fit everything in a single day!

Privately Jeff’s a dedicated, loving, family man but that wasn’t always the case. There was a wild side (or at least he fantasised of one) before somewhat accidentally meeting the love of his life whilst exploring the world of online dating. We talk through some of those experiences, what it was like to date online and how he somehow involved me in the process of proposing to his now wife.
Best known for her presenter roles on ABC’s “Good Game” and more recently Channel 7’s “Screen Play”, Steph is one of Australia’s foremost authorities on all things video games.

We talk to her about dealing with those realities, the anxiety of content creation and the mental side of being a public figure in the gaming world and how she deals with that day to day.
