On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Jehan Casinader.

Jehan Casinader is an award-winning journalist who is now one of New Zealand’s most sought-after key note speakers.

He worked in primetime TV for more than a decade across roles with Sunday., Seven Sharp, Close Up and Breakfast and was named “Broadcast Reporter of the Year” in 2020.

Jehan specialises in reporting on social issues. From gritty investigations to moving human-interest pieces and revealing celebrity profiles – Jehan has done them all. He also produced and hosted TVNZ’s first-ever mental health series, The Inside Word.

In this episode we talk about writing stories for the Holmes programme at 13, and travelling the world as a journo at 20. The collapse of the NZ media industry, why it happened and what we can learn from it, his night in Gloriavale, Graham Norton, why we have a men’s mental health crisis in NZ, and tips for those wanting to build their personal brand.

Jehan also shared details of his four-year struggle with depression, and suicidality and how “rewriting” his story helped him to survive.

This was an incredibly rich and thought-provoking chat. Jehan is one of NZ’s best and most articulate speakers and his messaging is so strong.

His message that many Kiwis think their brains are broken, but in fact, it’s our stories that are broken – feels very timely right now.

You’re going to love this one, Jehan is a weapon, and we thoroughly enjoyed this chat.

We're also super stoked to have Jehan on the books of B2B Speakers, so if you’d like him to MC your night, or share his story at your function or event, flick us a message by going to .
