Nova Entertainment and Acast are launching a podcast series with Andrew Denton featuring the interviews from his Seven series Interview With Andrew Denton.
Available from 18 April, the podcast is a companion to the TV series, where Denton attempts to get below the surface of an amazing human being, to find out who they are away from the headlines.
In an era of outrage and increasing polarisation, the series looks for light more than heat, wisdom more than clickbait.
Denton will take podcast listeners behind the scenes, providing insight into his motivation and approach for each guest. There will also be plenty of exclusive material that couldn’t be squeezed into the TV series.
“I love podcasting, because it gets inside peoples’ heads like nothing else,” Denton says. “Nova and Acast know exactly how to reach those heads. We’re so well suited, it’s like Married At First Sight without the assholes.”
Interview with Andrew Denton launches on April 18 with new episodes released every Tuesday and Thursday. Throughout the season listeners can also hear favourite show episodes featuring Daniel Johns, Magda Szubanski, Denise Scott, kidnap survivor Amanda Lindhout, Rebecca Sharrock (the woman who can remember every day of her life), Troye Sivan, Guy Pearce, Tim Winton, Rosie Batty, Dylan Alcott, Mick Fanning and Cher.
Interview with Andrew Denton is sponsored by Belong and Dairy Australia.
The TV series of the same name returns to Seven on April 23 on Tuesdays at 9pm.
