    Black Magic Woman Podcast launches ANZ partnership series during National Reconciliation Week

    Featuring Indigenous business owners, suppliers, community partners, and ANZ employees, the series will highlight a range of voices in telling the stories of personal and business experiences with reconciliation.

    The partnership is based on five years of shared vision, in which ANZ has worked closely with Mundanara and the BlackCard team to drive meaningful outcomes as part of its commitment to reconciliation for its national reconciliation program, culminating in the empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people toward self-determination and in control of their financial wellbeing. 

    “I would love to see more Indigenous businesses engaging with ANZ for their banking needs. I am an ANZ customer and can speak first-hand about how much of a difference it makes when you have a business banker who is First Nations,” said Mundanara Bayles. 

    “It is inspiring to see the ways in which ANZ can help Indigenous businesses to start and grow their operations, as well as creating many employment opportunities, not just at entry level with traineeships, but throughout ANZ’s organisation.  Our vision is to see more Australian organisations representing our people and culture at the highest level,” she said.

    Black Magic Woman was the first Indigenous podcast signed by iHeartRadio in 2023 and is also available on the BlakCast Network.

    Triton data reveals an 11% month-on-month uptick in listeners and a 5% rise in downloads on 9Podcasts

    The surge in listeners across Nine’s podcast content is underpinned by its news and sport offerings, coupled with new programs in key areas of growth.

    The Missing Campers Trial podcast – a production from the teams at 9News, The Age and 9Podcasts – has taken listeners inside the courtroom for the high-profile trial of Gregory Lynn, accused of murdering campers Russell Hill and Carol Clay.

    Episodes have been released in real time, revealing every detail as the evidence unfolds, examining key moments and bringing together audio and video to cover the crimes on trial in Victoria’s highest court. 

    Nine’s head of podcasts and digital content, Mia Stern, said: “9Podcasts is committed to showcasing the richness and diversity of Australian stories, ensuring that our listeners have access to content that is not only entertaining but also reflective of their own experiences and culture.

    “We can see the positive impact this continues to have on our audience growth, as more listeners are discovering new programs and listening for longer each month, creating a rich and varied environment for marketers and advertisers.”

    Brent Smart: ‘Nothing has ever been invented that’s as good at killing ideas as a corporation’

    According to Telstra CMO Brent Smart, “Nothing has ever been invented that’s as good at killing ideas as a corporation – they’re built to kill ideas.” 

    Referencing the idea that “culture eats strategy for breakfast” Smart said: “If you can create a creative culture inside a corporation, it’s an incredibly powerful thing.”

    Reflecting on his career, Smart said he “loved” his 20 years in agencies, but it got to a point where “the driving motivation” to leave agencies and become a marketer “was frustration with clients.”

    “I was just frustrated because I felt like we were putting the right ideas on the table, but they weren’t getting through to the corporations that we were working with for a multitude of reasons. I thought, what if I could be on the other side of the table? What if I could be able to say yes to ideas, and create the conditions for ideas to not die, but thrive?”

    It was this thought that brought Smart client side, he said. “You can have more impact being in charge of a brand as opposed to trying to influence people who are in charge of a brand.”
