All good with Bad Producers
Over the past three years, Bad Producer Productions have generated close to a million downloads across its six podcasts.
The Craig Bruce vehicle Game Changers: Radio was the first to come on board in 2016 and has become a ‘must listen’ for those in the industry.
Director Jay Mueller says it came about very quickly.
“When we, my partner Astrid Edwards and I, started Bad Producer Productions Craig was the first person to email me.
“We went live with our website early 2016, and within a day or two Craig emailed me to say he had an idea. Game Changers: Radio became our first podcast.
Game Changers: Radio went live with our first episode featuring Marty Sheargold on April 7, 2016.”
Game Changers has led to further projects including Tony Martin’s Child Proof, TEAM Effort with Ash Williams and Ed Kavalee and the NFL podcast In the Pocket.
Two further projects are in the planning stages with a view to record in the months ahead for release in 2019.
“How do I juggle it? Beats the hell out of me. I couldn’t do it without Astrid. She left a big job as a sustainability consultant four years ago to forge her career in the creative industries.
“She’s great at asking questions that force me to clarify my thinking about what we’re doing and she’s incredibly supportive of the crazy hours, creative flights of fancy and the commandeering of her office as the TEAM Effort Business Cupboard.”
Astrid is also heavily involved with The Garret: Writers on Writing, which will be recorded at the State Library of Victoria.
She’ll be joined by award-winning fantasy and sci-fi writers Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman. Previous episodes at the Library have featured Benjamin Law and Christos Tsiolkas.
Kristoff-Kauffman conversation will be recorded at the State Library of Victoria on September 18.
