Matty and son Cooper John’s podcast Backstage joins ARN’s iHeart podcast network

ARN’s iHeart has a new addition to its podcast stables, Backstage with Cooper and Matty Johns. Hosted by the energetic father and son duo, Matty and Cooper Johns, is a blend of comedy, charm, insight, and heartfelt dialogue between the pair alongside conversations with some of the entertainment and sports icons they admire.

Matty Johns said:

“We are delighted to partner with ARN’s iHeart and bring ‘Backstage with Cooper and Matty Johns’ to an even wider audience.

Our aim is to share the stories and experiences that have shaped the lives of our guests in a way that is both interesting and entertaining, and getting the chance to do this with Cooper was a no-brainer, we are having a ball.”

The podcast launched earlier this year with guests so far including cricketing legend David and media personality Candice Warner, KIIS 106.5 and 101.1‘s Jackie O, and business mogul Mark Bouris. Cooper Johns has recently joined the KIIS team alongside Kyle & Jackie O.

ARN’s Head of Digital Audio Corey Layton said:

“The rapid rise of the Backstage podcast is a testament to how Cooper and Matty connect with listeners. It offers much more than two NRL champions talking about the game as they delve into the lives of a broad range of sought after guests.”

Backstage with Cooper and Matty Johns is available now on the iHeart app or wherever you get your podcasts. The Matty Johns podcast, one of the earliest success stories of a podcast hosted by an Australian sports personality, also continues and was #55 in last month’s Australian Podcast Ranker.
