Two of Australia’s most prominent AFL journalists, Craig Hutchison and Damian Barrett, will record an episode of their popular weekly podcast in front of a live audience at La Trobe University this month.
The podcast is a behind-the-scenes look at the workings of AFL media and the hosts never shy away from talking about the mistakes they’ve made in their careers.
“It’s a self-deprecating view of industry tactics and practice through the prism of their own personal journey.
“Even if they’re just sports reporters and media businessman, they speak of navigating a profession that is designed to have inevitable confrontation and blood spilt.
“This is a half-hour weekly portrayal of the things that don’t get taught in J-School – what happens when bridges get burned; how the truth can get you into trouble and just how to handle industry egos with kid gloves.”
The podcast will be recorded at 10.00am in ELT 6 at La Trobe University on Wednesday, October 19.
The hosts will also answer questions from the live audience.
All La Trobe students and staff are welcome to attend.
