Meshel Laurie joins the Mamamia Podcast Network

Meshel Laurie has joined with the Mamamia Women’s Network to bring her interview podcast The Nitty Gritty Committee to its audio stable.

The announcement:

Meshel Laurie, writer, comedian, star of Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1 breakfast show, 3PM Pick-Up and Channel Ten’s The Project has joined forces with the Mamamia Women’s Network to bring her successful interview podcast, The Nitty Gritty Committee, to its audio stable.

The second season of The Nitty Gritty Committee – a show about ‘The Guts and Glory of life’ – is available exclusively through the Mamamia Podcast Network, and has launched with a confessional from one of the main players in the cult hit TV show Making A Murderer – prosecutor Ken Kratz.

Kratz was the former Calumet Country District Attorney who successfully prosecuted Avery for rape and murder, jailing him for life. And he tells Meshel that fans of the show were fooled into sympathy for the convicted killer.

“Only one side of this story was told.”

Laurie’s second season of The Nitty Gritty Committee follows an outstanding first season; Her longform interviews were recognised by iTunes as the Best Of 2015, in the category of Great Story Telling.

The Mamamia Podcast Network is a perfect fit for Laurie – committed to sharing authentic, smart and funny stories that resonate with Australian women. Another of MPN’s podcasts, Mamamia Outloud, was named Best New Podcast by iTunes in 2015.

The Nitty Gritty Committee is the sixth show in Mamamia’s ever-growing podcast stable which has amassed over 1.7million downloads in the past 12 months. Other podcasts include weekly topical discussion show Mamamia Outloud, Mia Freedman’s No Filter interview series, This Glorious Mess a podcast from the chaos of family life, I Don’t Know How She Does It about how successful women manage their lives and The Binge, where smart women talk about TV.
