Those Two Girls Announce Move From Radio To Podcasts

SCA has announced the Hit Network’s early breakfast radio hosts Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills will be transitioning from their national show to kick off a new daily podcast, Halfternoons with Those Two Girls, from 31 May on LiSTNR.

Released at 2pm weekdays, Halfternoons with Those Two Girls will be 30 minutes of Lise and Sarah helping listeners power through the mid-afternoon with their relatable stories around what’s caught their attention that day. The pair are on- and off-air best friends who have enjoyed successful broadcast careers as radio presenters, podcasters, event producers and MCs.

Sarah said: “The freedom, play and potential in the podcast space has excited us for some time and to work with the LiSTNR team developing a daily podcast right in time for those who need a little arvo pick-me-up, is where we want to be.”

Lise added: “The beauty of Halfternoons is people can listen to the 2pm drop, but it will absolutely still be relevant for folks on their evening commute home, or on the 5am trip to the gym the following morning; the aim is to keep our listeners company, whatever they’re doing.”

SCA has also acquired Lise and Sarah’s successful podcast, Forty, a weekly podcast series celebrating the life lessons and stories of popular Australian women in their forties, including Ada Nicodemou,Sarah WilsonYumi StynesMia Freedman, and Julie GoodwinForty has achieved more than 200,000 downloads and a 185% increase in listenership from 31 December – 31 March 2021.

Head of Hit Network, Gemma Fordham, said: “We have worked closely with Sarah and Lise since 2017 and created the early morning national breakfast shift for them to provide a platform to help their natural broadcasting talents sharpen and flourish. They have gone from strength to strength and have carved out an audience of Australian women who connect to their candour and authenticity. They have been standout performers for us digitally and I’m so pleased we have them joining the LiSTNR offering.”

Halfternoons with Those Two Girls will be published every weekday at 2pm from 31 May and is available via the LiSTNR app.
