A short while back, Sydney-based sketch and stand-up comedian, writer and director Greta Lee Jackson of Skit Box internet fame dropped me an email and Facebook message via Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! about catching-up and the next thing you know I’m setting up to record the first ever Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast at national broadcaster ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation for you overseas peeps).
 
It’s fantastic to be catching up with Greta Lee at a time when her career has reach that tipping point where things are really starting to hum with Skit Box’s ‘Activewear’ clip reaching 4.3M+ Views on YouTube via the Van Vuuren Bros, 775K+ views of the more recent ‘Activewear’ clip featuring Ellie Goulding, her brand new digital TV series ‘Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am’ launching on ABC’s iView in November, the Berlin Patient podcast (drops this week) and her return to Sydney Fringe Festival in early September with ‘Red Flag’.

Hot Dub Time Machine creator Tom Lowndes and I became buddies at the wedding of one of our mutual best friends on the grounds of the most amazing estate in the Blue Mountains over Australia Day weekend and from the moment I met him, I knew that I wanted to share his story with my audience.
 
In today’s podcast we cover a range of topics including Hot Dub Time Machine bringing in the New Year playing to 80 thousand people on the packed & picturesque streets of Edinburgh for world-renown Hogmanay New Year’s Eve Festival, working with his inspiring and talented wife, partner-in-crime and actor, Alexandra Plim, music industry chats about Falcona and the success of Alison Wonderland and DMAs in North America, DJ Shadow and Tom’s professional inspirations, working in TV and creating sound design for literally hundreds of episodes on high profile Australian TV shows such as Underbelly and McLeod’s Daughters, his latest project in development that’s the kids verion of Hot Dub Time Machine called Kid Dub, his secret to success, dreams with dates and much, much more.
 
A lad from the inner-west of Sydney Australia who went fromworking as a DJ and Video artist from in the comedy scene to the creator of Hot Dub Time Machine. This exciting and heart-warming tale of success couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy – a passion project that has rapidly exploded into a full-time job and career that today sees Tom Lowndes playing packed out main stage headline slots at some of the biggest festivals around the world.
 
Wonderful story! Enjoy the podcast!

Interview #28 Sean Callanan (Sports Geek – global digital sports marketer & podcaster).  

Ladies & Gentleman welcome to the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet podcast. My name’s Dan Wilkinson and today we sit-down on the couch with Australian digital sports marketer and podcaster, Sean Callanan, who started his journey back in the day as a developer/coder, slung in out in the trenches of community radio and today works with sporting organizations around Australia and the world including clients in the AFL, NRL, cricket and more, advising them what to do with their brand in the digital space.

For our podcast lovers, Sean’s two podcasts, Sports Geek and the Beers, Blokes and Business podcast cover some super interesting subject matter and have recently just ticked over 200,000 downloads. 

The Sports Geek podcast features interviews with sports business professionals from English Premier League, NBA, NHL, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, AFL, NRL and NCAA and enjoys listenership in over 75 countries while the Beers, Blokes & Business podcast are regular catch-ups with Sean and his contacts across various industries, where they chat about the challenges of their businesses and how they work through them (over a few cheeky beers of course).

I loved catching up with Sean Callanan today, as it’s not that often that I get to engage with a fellow digital marketer and share our mutual learnings in the roles we play for our clients. Sean shares lots of little gems, including 3 pieces of advice he would give anyone who wants to start marketing their brand in the digital space – no matter whether they be sports teams, individuals, large brands, small business or whatever.

We cover Sean Callanan’s experiences of a lifetime including living in Tennessee as a kid, utilizing the power of Twitter to connect with people that ends up with him sitting in a corporate box shooting the shit with high-powered executives at LA Dodgers – Dodger Stadium, interviewing the likes of Mark Cuban (Audionet founder, Dallas Mavericks owner), Richard Clarke (Arsenal), English cricketer Mike Gatting and that Ball of the Century and the unwavering tenacity that culminates with you meeting and working with people beyond your wildest dreams

Johann Ponniah from I OH YOU. Bringing the party back to the people!

Interview #27 – Johann Ponniah (I OH YOU! – brand, music company record label – founder & director).  

Howdy howdy howdy… today we sit-down on the couch with Johann Ponniah, one of the founders & director of the love child that is I OH YOU!, an Australian music company, brand and independent record label born of 4 guys in the city of Melbourne, that’s becoming bigger than what they could ever have imagined. 

For the uninitiated, the I OH YOU crew launched in 2009 when the then four teenage housemates received a final notice from their gas company for a bill they couldn’t afford to pay off. In a desperate last ditch effort to raise the funds, Johann and his mates threw a house party with live music acts and with the 200 people that attended (including the local police force), the housemates raised enough cash to pay all their bills for the next quarter.

Now I’ve been working in and around the Australian music industry for about 9 years now and I’ve met many many wonderful people, whom, if you haven’t worked in the music scene, invariably aren’t super well paid, driven by their pure passion for music and hunger to make a difference in the scene or at least make their mark.

Johann is a guy who through sheer determination and a SHITLOAD of hard work has built a career within the music industry and been instrumental in working with amazing artists of the likes of DZ Deathrays, Violent Soho, DMAs and more, to take their respective careers to a whole new level, not only in Australia, but on a global scale.

Despite having already achieved a whole swag of success in Australia, Johann remains refreshingly humble and focused on the future – ever-hungry for whatever’s next on his list of goals to tick-off for I OH YOU as a business and the artists that they work with.

We chat about his mentors in music and his family, his Sri Lankan background, a childhood spent growing-up in Campbelltown Sydney and the life lessons he learned after moving to Melbourne just 3 days after finishing high school.

Music industry accolades, successful international touring artists & putting the pieces together to build their business globally… Johann and the guys from I OH YOU are hungry and kicking massive goals.

So humble and many, fascinating tales to share for those just beginning their foray into the Australian or international music scene, whether you be artist, promotor, budding indie label founder or manager.

I hope you love this chat as much as I did.

Enjoy!
