Aussies in Hollywood and We Paid to See This podcasts launch on PodcastOne

PodcastOne has launched two new podcasts – Aussies in Hollywood with Jenny Cooney and We Paid to See This with Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano.

The announcement:

Grant Tothill, Head of Podcasting at SCA today announced that the podcasts Aussies in Hollywood and We Paid to See This are now ready to listen to on the PodcastOne website and PodcastOne app.

Announcing Aussies in Hollywood Grant Tothill said; “This podcast gives us an armchair position to hear the intimate stories of Aussies in Hollywood; from when they arrive in LA to landing the first gig and then building a successful career.”

Jenny Cooney is an Australian journalist who has lived in Hollywood for 30 years and her clients include TV Week, the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age.  She is a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and votes for the Golden Globes so she has had a front row seat to watch the many waves of Australian talent who have arrived in Hollywood to make their mark over the years.  From Paul Hogan to the Hemsworths, from Nicole Kidman to Margot Robbie – Jenny knows them all.

In the first two episodes Jenny talks to the grounded Rachel Griffiths, of Muriel’s Wedding,Six Feet Under and Hacksaw Ridge fame, about her career, navigating family and returning to Australia and to Yvonne Strahovski who landed her first gig three days after she landed in LA and is now starring with Elizabeth Moss in the drama series everyone is talking about:The Handmaid’s Tale.

We Paid to See This is the passion project of two great friends: Darren Hayes (yes, it is theDarren from Savage Garden) and Anthony Armentano. The two met during their three years of training at The Groundlings School in Los Angeles; an improv comedy school where famous alums have included Melissa McCarthy, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig.   Their LA based review show offers an honest, comedic and often hilariously unfiltered take on the week’s latest cinema releases as well as a whole lot of lively banter about their daily lives.  Recent episodes discuss films such as The Beguiled, A Monster Calls and Wonder Woman.
