In conversation with Tim Burrowes
An intense decade in media
For the first podcast of the Crawford Media experience I have the honour of presenting Mumbrella founder Tim Burrowes. The discussion covers the tumultuous last decade in Australian media history, as told in his book Media Unmade.
I went deep into the book in my review. Here you have a chance to hear Burrowes explain his thinking around the book’s structure and subjects, and also go into some of the bigger characters in recent media history.
While I intend to publish interviews where possible, I can’t promise podcasts with the regularity of the newsletter. Where I have high-quality audio, I’ll do my best to make the interviews available.
In this conversation I assumed a great deal of knowledge on the part of the listener, which is no doubt annoying. Apologies. Please see my earlier newsletter for context. Here is a list of some of the people mentioned in this podcast:
