Yas! Podcasting in Bondi Beach and there’s a party in my pants! 

I rocked up to Bondi Beach Public Bar to record Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! weekly entrepreneurship podcast with this week’s feature guest Andrew Maciver, creator and founder of Party Pants and Bondi Productions, and he had a gift for me. My very own pair of his signature ALOHA Party Pants.

A community of business owners, innovators and game-changers who make their own luck is one of the key reasons that I moved to Bondi Beach from Coogee Beach, when I first arrived in Sydney 3.5 years ago – I describe it as a local global suburb, not because of the volume of tourists and backpackers on holiday visas, but because of the number of locals or residents that have their eyes on the prize and are striving to achieve greatness. This place is a beehive and hub of energy. And Andrew Maciver is one of those!

On today’s show we dive into the Party Pants origin story, Andrew’s ambitions and next steps to scale up the business, his desire to evolve Party Pants into a social enterprise, the process and challenges pulling together a team of creative producers and writers based in Sydney and Los Angeles developing film and television projects to take to market, brand new TV show ideas for Bondi Productions and much, more more.

I’m not surprised at how quickly and easily the conversation flowed given that we have over 30 mutual friends (and inspiring minds) in common from our time in Los Angeles and Australia (Sydney/Melbourne).  And I’m not kidding, I wore the most awesome ALOHA Party Pants out for drinks for the first time the next afternoon and night at a Can Cava pintxos & wine, Mamasan Bondi, BBPB and more in Bondi Beach and I lost count of the high volume of attractive women and men, who approached us with “Love the pants! Where can I get them?”.

We soak up RIVAH’s travels since our last podcast together 4 years ago, exploring her journey from Brisbane to Auckland to Melbourne, New York City, Los Angeles and all the way back again.

Living all over Brooklyn, a place that now feels like her “first home”, RIVAH is all set to jet back to the USA in a matter of weeks once her O1 Alien of Extraordinary Ability visa is processed and she shares the joy and musical evolution of her self-titled debut EP, snapping up a record deal with Inertia Music, her pinch me moments, the importance of authenticity, openness and honesty, philosophy, ambition and so much more.

So much positive energy, RIVAH lights up the room wherever she goes and damn, you need to hear her sing! Let’s get into the show!

Editorial: Can Snapchat He/She Be Over Already?

Posted on Updated on

Can Snapchat he/she be over already? 🤦‍♂️🐏🐑🐑😴💤 Inspire Me With Amazing Creative Content! 

Be gone poorly executed Lame of Thrones activations, Murad Osmann copycats, living my best life posts, #yolo, douchebags capturing “pensive” staged images of themselves for Instagram facing breathtaking back-drop landscapes, clickbait, duckface, content with overly branded text lock-ups and logos… 🔥 🔥 🔥 Throw all of it into the bin please and send me something that’s real, creative, interesting & inspirational! ✨

It is about time that we as marketers and creatives (myself included) drive clients to break the mould and lead the way instead of following the crowd and re-hashing the same tired old brand concepts, executions and activations.

We must strive to generate short and long-form content that actually adds value to people’s lives. Even on our personal channels. Just because you can post a grainy pub lunch schnitzel or gym mirror selfie online, it doesn’t mean that you should. We’ve got to be more sophisticated!

Ask yourself. What’s the coolest idea that I have created or executed of late? Am I proud of what I am/we are publishing online?

I’d love to hear from you and for you to share with me with links on this LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram thread! What is the most inspiring personal or brand creative that you’ve seen or executed yourself, that’s blown your mind of late? Inspire Me With Amazing Creative Content!

Ever wondered what it’s like to be the black sheep? Or have you always known and owned who you are, strived to find your people and pursued your passions ferociously from an early age?

Kerri Glasscock is an absolute baller!! Growing up as a kid in a small country town NSW, Kerri craved a career in performance arts and moved to Newtown as a teenager, Sydney’s hub of arts, music and culture, so that she could attend the Newtown High School of the Performing Arts amongst her peers. And she flourished!

Keep Sydney Open!

Kerri and I enjoy vast ranging chats on the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast this week,from the growth of Sydney Fringe Festival and its 10 year anniversary in 2019 (September 1st – 30th), female entrepreneurship and the business of the arts, Kerri’s real life creative, philosophical and business inspirations, a Bondi Beach x Newtown super suburb and much, much more.

Kerri Glasscock is down to earth, a business person that makes things happen and one of the most inspiring people that I have podcasted with in quite some time!

Podcast Feature: Street Art & Human Impact of Social Media – NOT NOT Cam Scott.

Posted on Updated on

@NOTNOTCamScott x @hotndelicious entrepreneurship podcast LIVE at Bondi Beach!

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #210 Street Artist NOT NOT – Cam Scott – Street Art & Social Media.

Bondi Beach-based street artist NOT NOT aka Cam Scott captured my imagination last year with ‘Digital Realities’, his thought provoking street art series designed to have us individually to consider the impact of the behaviours and addictions that the major platforms and mobile phone technology are creating, breeding and feeding in society and our everyday lives.

From our digital selves to clickbait compulsions, this is a fascinating exploration into the digital world and I loved having him on the show! We share our own individual techniques that we use for regular digital escape, Centre for Humane Technology’s approach to ‘“realigning technology with humanity’s best interests, the LIKE IRL project, his TEDx TED Talk, how Cam Scott came to create his Sunnys Eyewear brand, ‘In Praise of Idleness’ and NOT NOT’s 2 key pieces of advice that he’d give to someone who has a dream, but is afraid to take that first step.

Super inspiring and fascinating chats with a highly intelligent, genuine, thoughtful and personable individual. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

Wicked podcast chats with American stand-up comedian & host of the ‘Road Stories’ podcast Murray Valeriano!

Live from Los Angeles, I am proud to call this son of a preacher man from Memphis (Tennessee), via New Jersey, my friend and on today’s show we chat about landing on an aircraft carrier in the Middle East, performing for American troops at a non-existent military base in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa and ‘Comedians on Safari’ where Californian comedians book stand-up comedy tours around surfing safaris,

We also discuss Murray Valeriano’s latest hour-long show on religion, which is bound to raise a few eyebrows in the USA where religious belief still hold so much sway and power, being inspired and motivated by his Academy Award nominated wife Mary Zophres, who is one of the best costume designers in Hollywood, on movies such as La La Land, True Grit and Catch Me If You Can and much, more more.

Super show and chatting with Murray V just makes me want to jump on a jet-plane back to California! Such good people! Let’s get into it!
