Podcast Guest Appearances

Lifefulness: Live Life Fully with Tim Minchin
Today we are interviewing Tim Minchin - comedian, musician, actor, songwriter and multi-talented genius. He's played sold out comedy shows at the Sydney Opera House, his songs have gone mega-viral a bunch of times, he wrote the every award-winning musical Matilda and we feel he should leave some of the success for everyone else. Alongside this he's been a proud skeptic, atheist and humanist who, through his art and public comment, engages deeply with why we are here, and how we should live.
David Tennant Does a Podcast With… Tim Minchin
Musical mastermind and creative polymath Tim Minchin talks to David Tennant about his journey from comedy to musical theatre to Hollywood movies, rejecting fame and his quest to write songs his wife actually likes.
