In Detail

By Kate FitzGerald + Warwick Mihaly + Mick Moloney

In Detail is a new podcast that takes you behind the scenes of creative business. Hosted by three architects, Mick Moloney, Kate Fitzgerald and Warwick Mihaly, we’re going to tackle the awkward questions, open up on our own experiences, and bring you the business insights that we wish we had when we were starting out. We want to hear from you too. If you’ve got a pressing question that you’ve always wanted to ask, then get in touch. We need your help to lift the cone of silence around these topics and reveal what it’s really like to run a creative business. Music - Sean Gorman & Salary

In the first of a two-part series (we love a multi-parter), we're exploring some of the white knights who've come along over the years and saved our bacon. They're our Knight Bacons.

In our third and final episode on marketing, Marketing 103, we speak to the wonderful Amy Edwards of Brisbane-based marketing consultancy Markedly. She corrects us on all that we got wrong in our first two marketing episodes and we discover that we got one or two things right, too. Thank you, dear listeners, for your patience regarding Kate’s terrible audio in this episode. You’d think we’d have it worked out by now.  In Detail is hosted by Warwick Mihaly, Kate FitzGerald and Mick Moloney Find us: www.indetail.show Twitter: @indetailshow Mail: indetail.show@gmail.com Big thanks to our sponsor Architeam
