What people are saying about the show

  • Fantastic insight into media industry.
    August 6, 2017 by Firstclassmale from United Kingdom

    If you watch/listen to media people and you think "i can do that" well listen to this podcast. Although this podcast is Australian. It is possable you may have heard of some of the personalities on the shows. Rachel Corbett is great as the host. Having worked on TV and radio for many years she understands the in's and outs of the industry. Please give it a go.

  • Quoll-e-tea
    July 29, 2017 by Magoo88 from Australia

    Great podcast with great insights. But most importantly, I've attained a newfound respect for a lot of your guests. You only hear so much from mainstream media outlets, but when these people are telling their stories, you garner so much more. So thank you for that and apologies to those in the industry who have to put up with constant prejudging but still put on a brace face. I know the majority of the population couldn't do it. But we forget they're normal human beings just like us. Ps. Rachel, have you ever gone blonde? You should try blonde. I think you'll suit blonde. Worth a shot

  • Sensational podcast
    July 27, 2017 by Benlux1 from Australia

    Been following Rach since the triple m days and as always this is another nugget of gold. Great job????

  • Where them chicks at?
    July 25, 2017 by Londush from Australia

    It's a great podcast but I'm starting to think you need a penis to start somewhere.

  • Excellent new discovery!
    July 25, 2017 by Shelby775 from Australia

    I've just discovered this podcast and I'm already a huge fan. Rachel is a great interviewer and her guests are interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing more.

    July 19, 2017 by Me.BAROSS from Australia

    Awesome Podcast with some really interesting people!!

  • I'm binging....
    July 9, 2017 by Scott Kilmartin from Australia

    The backstories of the people we read, watch and listen to each day in Aus. Rachel has a relaxed interview style, doesn't try to be the focus and yet is both well researched and funny af. The Waleed Aly and Leigh Sales eps are my favs so far.

  • What a show!
    July 3, 2017 by Dingoboy2 from United States

    A great show to "pull back the curtain" & to find out what it takes to get to get in & ahead in the media industry.

  • Thoroughly enjoying!
    June 29, 2017 by Abbie_Allen from Australia

    I'm thoroughly enjoying these podcasts. I'm not in media but I run multiple businesses and try to put myself out there. I so love hearing the "behind the scenes" and the 'real' stories from people who so often just seem so put together when in reality they're just like me! 😉 Thank you Rachel - keep the episodes coming!

  • Can't stop listening
    June 26, 2017 by lizabethkate from Australia

    June 22, 2017 by Hardcore Troubadour from Australia

    Informative & insightful if you're interested in the media. Very entertaining if your interest is the guests. Rachel is a delightful host who brings out the best in those she talks to.

    A great insight into the hardships of the industry. Throughly enjoy listening to the stories each week - brilliant, honest and so many laughs along the way.

  • Fascinating stories.
    June 9, 2017 by Nyonkin from Australia

    Two episodes in and I'm hooked. Really interesting hearing the stories. Especially enjoyed the Ugly Phil episode. I too had Fox FM on in the shower as a teenager. Good times listening to the Hot 30 back then and was fascinating to hear his journey.

  • Love it!

    Akin to Radio Game Changers, this podcast is a brilliantly produced series of yarns with some big names who staked everything to succeed.

  • Insightful podcast
    March 29, 2017 by Jess Campo from Australia

    Rachel has a lovely style, funny, refreshing, a brilliant story teller. I love the insight into how eveyone made it, her guests lifting back the curtain. There's no such thing as an overnight success!

    March 24, 2017 by Matt Rutley from Australia

    A fun yet grounded and honest little poddy.

  • A peak under the hood
    March 24, 2017 by Gcreate from Australia

    If I know Corbett and I think I do - she doesn't dissappoint with this new entertaining poddy full of Corbett style relatability and humour you struggle to get elsewhere. Gotta Start Somewhere is the fly on the wall that gives you a peak behind the curtain/under the hood/mirror mirror of well known faces, before they were faces/voices. Jolly good.

  • Amazing

    March 17, 2017 by G-Laing from Australia

    Rachel Corbett shows once again that she is the essential down to earth presenter who naturally comes across as the kind of person you want to interview the people you've seen and heard on Aussie radios and TVs. No egos, just a good honest chit chat.

  • Insightful and fun
    March 12, 2017 by Loadmann from Australia

    Ok. I got the sample pack ,thanks. I would like to order one of everything thanks ? . Excellent stuff. Rach, I think your continued fearlessness revealing your true thoughts in a jovial fashion will make your interviewees comfortable enough to do the same. Your Podcast skills and you broad array of showbiz contacts leads me to anticipate a daily podcast 🙂 ?…..well most weeks would be nice. I just want to say good luck, we are all counting on you.
