A Psycho’s diary, The Bloods and two new podcasts from NOVA

Big Brother Star Ari Kimber launches his podcast, Diary of a Sydney Psycho on Piccolo Podcasts

Diary of a Sydney Psycho will harness Ari’s brash and contentious sense of humour to cover all things relevant to Gen Z, from reality TV, pop culture, sex, politics and everything in between, and he says, “I am so excited to bring you all along with me as I navigate my way through Sydney! I’m going to spill all the goss and roast as many reality stars as I can! I don’t hold back so get ready Australia!”

Ari will be joined by producers Holly Mitchell and Andrew Menczel in hosting the show.

Piccolo Podcasts Managing Director, Andrew Menczel, says “Ari has been one of the most entertaining reality stars to hit Australian television this year. He’s young, smart, funny and not afraid to say it exactly how he sees it. Piccolo Podcasts is thrilled to have him on board and I can’t wait to see this podcast take off.”

The Bloods – untold stories of Sydney Swans

In the six-part docuseries, produced by The Horde, footy fans will hear from Sydney Swans’ greats who talk candidly about moments that shaped the club. 

The Bloods features key interviews and recollections from an all-star cast, which includes former premiership winning coach Paul Roos, current Sydney coach John Longmire, the enigmatic Warwick Capper, former AFL Chairman Ross Oakley, revered journalist Tim Lane and many more.

The narrative begins in the dark days of the late 1980s, documenting the Swans’ rise from a struggling, financially crippled club who had little choice but to relocate to Sydney. The late Geoffrey Edelsten’s reign as the first private owner of an AFL club is retold and the debilitating early 1990s provides a clearer picture of how grim the situation was for Sydney.

While the story of how the Swans lured one of the AFL’s most iconic figures, Tony Lockett, to the harbour city is a fascinating tale of persistence by an AFL powerbroker.

This action-packed journey is an engrossing listen for any footy fan, who wants to learn more about the turbulent times of the 1980s and 1990s, as well as what makes Sydney an admired organisation.

Producer of The Bloods and CEO of The Horde, Adrian Houghton, is ecstatic with the end product and feels they are addressing a much-needed opportunity with Australian sports content.

He says, “Our country is steeped in rich sports history. But as time goes on, the legacies of many great athletes and teams are being lost. Those who inspire us, are leaving us, without capturing their tales in digital form.”

“There is a need and appetite for historical, storytelling content and it is imperative that these
stories are told for future generations.”
