Duo making noise overseas
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.
