My guest today is one of my nearest and dearest friends, Nikki Ruderman.

I want to introduce you all to Nikki because she represents ambition, discipline and fun really beautifully. I became close friends with Nikki about 8 years ago. I would see her regularly at gym. Any day that I went to gym, she would be there and on my off days she would also be there - lifting more than you and I combined - and usually doing it with a massive ...

Today's guest is the inspiring comedian and TikTok star, Blake Pavey.

Blake grew up in Corowa, an Aussie country town, with a population of about 6000 people. When he was in year 11 he started to go viral regularly with his funny daily comedy sketches.

Blake has amassed an audience of over 700,000 people on TikTok. Can you imagine being in high school at 17 or 18 years old with a following like that? Let alone in a small country ...

Today's guest is the beard-bearing, Isaac Butterfield.

Isaac is an Aussie comedian who has no trouble selling out shows when he tours. A large reason for this is because he isn't afraid of speaking his mind, which sometimes means being controversial.

As I interview more and more comedians, I'm noticing a trend in the way that they see the world of comedy. First and foremost, they want to make people laugh BUT they also po...

Michael has been diagnosed with testicular cancer twice and beaten it twice. He ded...

This week's guest is my dear friend Rachel Anderson - but on YouTube you may know her as Rachel-Lee.

I met Rach at a YouTube event and she has since become a close friend of mine. She has been making videos on YouTube for 10 years. 10 years! In the internet world that is a LONG time! Because of this though, Rach has experienced many different online niches and has pivoted her content many times based on what she is interested in...

Today's guest is the very funny and insightful comedian; Joe White.

There is something incredibly wholesome about Joe's brand of humour. He mostly draws on stories of his family's immigration to Australia in his teenage years. They were refugees from Sudan living in extreme poverty. His dad was an abusive alcoholic who left his brave mother to fend for Joe and his five siblings.

What I love about today's podCARst is h...

I met Steph whilst Uber driving three years ago. She was my passenger. Since then she has been in more than 30 episodes of Funny Uber Rides which have helped tens of millions of people around the world laugh. Stoussy is a crowd favourite!

Steph has become a close friend and I adore her because what you see is what you get. She ha...

Today’s guest is the proud prankster and stand up comedian, Lewis Spears. Lewis has featured in Funny Uber Rides a few times. I asked him to be a guest on the podCARst today because the way that he goes about promoting his online content and stand up comedy is very different to most people. I figured that it would be interesting to explore the mindset of someone online who is not afraid of being polarising to various audiences but ...

Today’s guest is the legendary Angry Dad (aka Mark Orval). He got this nickname from a series of viral prank videos that his kids have uploaded online. Mark's reactions to these cheeky pranks are often…well...angry!

Mark's story is super interesting. He was an up and coming Aussie rules football star who played 7 games for Collingwood until an extremely unfortunate injury ended his career abruptly and when his sporting dream...

Special Thank-Q to Phoebe for being a part of this! If you'd like to ...
