The Radio Randomly Podcast returns with Sirius XM producer Ben Harlum as first guest

The Radio Randomly Podcast is back for 2019 with host Daniel Gawned spending time with an Aussie working in the Big Apple.

Ben Harlum moved to the States a couple of years ago and landed a job at satellite radio station Sirius XM as the executive producer of the Morning Mash Up.

Their podcast chat covers a lot of ground with the pair discussing US radio vs Australian radio, the role of radio producers in the States and how he got his foot in the door.

“I’m just jealous Ben gets to work in the same building as the great man Howard Stern! He’s absolutely living the dream doing radio in arguably the best city in the world, NYC!

“Having looked into it myself at one point I know it isn’t easy to break into the market over there. I asked him for advice for anyone thinking of doing the same & his response was straight to the point & simple – you really just have to stop thinking about it & have a crack!

Ben explains how he made that happen in this episode of the podcast (which I really just wanted to record to get back inside the Sirius XM building and see what jobs might be available haha) kidding! (kind of)”

The Radio Randomly Podcast is available for download on iTunes.

Really appreciate Gawndy asking me to be on his podcast after Fitzy, Wippa, Kyle, Jackie, Fifi, Marty, Bodge, Byron, Chrissie and Graeme Gilbert all declined.
