300th episode of Don’t Shoot the Messenger podcast celebrated with live show

The 300th episode of SEN‘s Don’t Shoot the Messenger, hosted by journalists Caroline Wilson and Corrie Perkin, was celebrated in front of a packed audience at the Bells Hotel in South Melbourne. But that’s not all, the podcast also passed 3 million total downloads.

For the celebratory event last week the two best mates Wilson and Perkin, were joined by special guests Essendon Football Club senior coach Brad Scott (pictured with the pair) and football journalist Mike Sheahan, with Scott talking about his decision to return to coaching and being called to account for why he never appeared on Sheahan’s ‘Open Mike’ television program.

Don’t Shoot The Messenger, which launched in 2017, covers not just news and sport but also cooking, reading and other activities enjoyed by Wilson and Perkin, usually accompanied by a glass of wine.

Perkin said:

“Caro and I have been sharing conversations for 45 years. It is a joy to share these via the podcast – and a joy to be her friend. We still have so much to discuss!”

Wilson added:

“Corrie has been an absolute joy to work with for the past seven years, and I hope we do it for many, many more years”.

Sports Entertainment Network Group Radio Director Sam Thompson is a fan too:

“Along with the audience, ‘Don’t Shoot The Messenger’ is a weekly listening ritual for me. Caro & Corrie share their conversations and friendship – they make me laugh and think, and over the years, I’ve watched what they have watched, purchased their wine and book recommendations, and cooked their recipe suggestions. 
It is a testament to both women who have cultivated a wonderful audience over the past seven years, and it was an absolute pleasure to celebrate the milestone as one big ‘Don’t Shoot The Messenger’ family.”
