Hamish & Andy will continue podcasting with SCA’s podcast platform, PodcastOne.
Grant Tothill, Head of PodcastOne said, “Hamish and Andy’s millions of fans won’t miss them – they can still hear Hamish & Andy weekly with their new original podcasts.
“They will produce two series of 40 podcasts in 2018 and 2019, which will be released first on PodcastOne and then on iTunes.
“Given PodcastOne is a partnership with PodcastOne in the US, Hamish & Andy will now have the opportunity to reach a whole new audience.”
Since the podcast of their radio show started, it has had more than a quarter of a billion downloads and in 2017 alone there have been nearly 28 million downloads, making it the most successful Australian podcast of all time.
“Previously the podcast has been the radio show, now it is a show purely made for the podcasting format. I mean, it’s going to sound pretty similar, it’s our voices, but it’s cool to be playing 100% in the podcasting world”, said Andy.
“I’m going to have to teach my grandma how to podcast, so the move does not come without its hurdles, but the excitement outweighs the challenges! We can’t wait,” said Hamish.
“We also can say things in unison,” said the boys together.
Tothill said, “The boys are a great addition to the PodcastOne family and I’m so pleased that although they may not be on radio for the moment, they’re not leaving SCA.”
