Fred Fairbrass and his brother Richard Fairbrass are the duo that make up the legendary Right Said Fred. In this career defining interview (for Maynard) you will learn from Fred Fairbrass all you ever need to know about one of the UK’s greatest pop bands. Misconceptions will also be kicked in the bum as you…
Maynard was the host of the Triple J breakfast show when the current host was being born. How has Tom Ballard’s 2012 been? What does he want to do next? What is his favourite song of the year? Why does Tom know who Maynard is?
Rebecca Watson of Skepchick was in Melbourne last weekend for the Australian Skeptics convention. We spoke about hair dye technology, feminism, books and a very bisexual James Bond.
Are there any good stories left? Has shitty reality TV killed narrative? Maynard asks Tim Ferguson, Jack Marx, Tony Push & Fiona Scott-Norman about the lack of good story telling on TV and at the movies. Or maybe it’s alive and well after all?
Sönke Neitzel examined the transcripts of secret recording made of German POWs in Britain. The casual, pitiless brutality in them raises issues for 21st century conflicts.
Mr Richard Fidler is the host of Conversations on ABC Radio. He is also a well known republican and all round very nice guy. Not to mention his work with The Doug Anthony All Stars, which we will. I haven’t caught up with Richard for years, so listen in.
Maynard travels from Australia to interview George Hrab backstage and candidly at The Amazing Meeting 2012 in Las Vegas. George talks about difficult issues in comedy and life as Maynard becomes nervous. Explicit language and adult concepts such as monogamy ahead.
Last weekend at pop culture expo Supanova Sydney celebrated it’s 10th birthday. I spoke with lots of fans as well as Tricia Helfer from Battlestar Galactica, but I enjoyed meeting all the fez wearing Dr Who fans the most.
Maynard presents a brief look at the second greatest musical ever (after Can’t Stop The Music) Xanadu. Maynard was lucky to interview the cast of Xanadu The Musical in Sydney. Tony Push joins Maynard to relive some philosophical moments of Madd Club history.
