Duo mak­ing noise over­seas

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

HALF a bil­lion pod­cast down­loads and counting ... Hamish and Andy ( right) are more pop­u­lar than ever.

On top of their le­gion of Aussie fans, the pair are rapidly gain­ing trac­tion over­seas, with a large chunk of their au­di­ence now lis­ten­ing in the US, Canada and the UK.

“Noth­ing thrills us more than when we get peo­ple telling us ‘ I’m a fac­tory worker in Phoenix and I listen to you guys while I’m driv­ing my fork­lift around’,” Blake told Con­fi­den­tial.

“For us that’s the real buzz of do­ing the pod­cast, you get such an awe­some, eclec­tic mix of peo­ple around the globe for es­sen­tially what is two id­iots chat­ting to each other in a stu­dio, now wear­ing match­ing track­suits.”

The boys have re­leased their first episode of two se­ries of 40 pod­casts over the next two years. They will also be avail­able in the US via Pod­castOne US.

Blake says the pair have a bet­ter work- life bal­ance since quit­ting ra­dio late last year.
