Dan Higson and Nick West of Smith & Western, fire up Zoom to check-in on Craig Reucassel and other personalities from the ad and media world to find out how they’re managing through the pandemic and the harsh lockdowns we’re all still experiencing.
Says Higson: “In these next four episodes we caught up with some very great talkers. First up we were lucky enough to get Craig Reucassel to take time out of his busy day to talk to us. Craig’s relationship with the advertising world has been mainly about taking the piss out of it on his shows like The Chaser and The Checkout but these days Craig is best known for his own shows, the massively successful War On Waste and more recently the ABC news quiz Win The Week. Craig tells us his experiences of trying to get a book, a play, a film and on a TV show done … during lockdown.”
