Season three of The Babble podcast will return, now featuring three episodes a week.
Matty J and producer Ruby Teys will be covering the return of Mondays listener letters and special guests, Thursdays review on all things celebrity and entertainment and an all-new fan-requested Pop Culture Quiz episode on Saturdays.
A diverse range of guests will join the team on Mondays including the first guest Hollywood heavy weight and former MTV VJ Keiynan Lonsdale, known for roles in The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, The Divergent Series: Insurgent and The Finest Hours. Mondays episodes will also feature Will Égg Boy’ Connolly, the Australian teenager who donated close to $100,000 to the survivors of the Christchurch terrorist attack, after smashing an egg on Senator Fraser Anning’s head. Égg Boy has now raised $200,000 for the long term mental health support of Australia’s bush fire victims and travels the world for global unity outreach programs.
Andrew Brentnall, Nova’s Managing Editor said, “The Babble is a great example of Nova’s strategic direction to build new audiences through original and relevant content. Digital audio plays an important role in the future of Australian media and is an exciting place to see real creativity shine through. Our original content is developing and adapting to the needs and wants of the Australian market. The Babble is now even more focused on providing light relief during these challenging times – hand picking the best entertainment stories to discuss, finding the most interesting people to interview and delivering quirky answers to listener problems. In response to audience demand for more content from The Babble, we are now publishing three times a week and launching a special quiz off each Saturday to provide an opportunity for listeners to become involved.”
The Babble launched in November 2019 and is the Nova Network’s first original popular culture podcast.
