Mumbrellacast: Special guest Shaun Micallef, why Bauer is buying mags, Ogilvy drops David, Nielsen under the microscope

On this week’s Mumbrellacast, we speak to Aussie comedy legend Shaun Micallef (25:45) about the revival of Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation on Nine, his thoughts on the future of Australian drama, and what it’s like to put a show like Mad As Hell together every week.

Shaun also walks us through the time he went completely berserk on a Ten breakfast segment, which, thanks to the joys of YouTube, you can relive in all its glory here.
