    Fair Enough podcast by Lachlan and Jaxon Fairbairn to transition to MIK Made

    Australian comedy duo Lachlan and Jaxon Fairbairn, the creators behind the YouTube channel Fairbairn Films and the Spotify Original podcast Fair Enough, are making a move to MIK Studio for the third season of their podcast. 

    The move comes from the newly formed partnership between MIK Studios and Neuralle.

    Dylan Adams, head of audio at MIK Studio and content director at MIK Made, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership: “The boys have obviously been on our radar for some time now, and I’m such a personal fan of their content. When we heard they were looking for a new publisher and production partner it was a no-brainer”.

    Neuralle managing director, Jordan Michaelides, commented on the move away from Spotify: “The opportunity to build IP ownership on a show that their name on the tin was incredibly important for the boys. Dylan and the team at MIK have a strong belief in talent ownership which aligned with our goals and ultimately made us choose them over other networks.”

    The new iteration of the show is currently in development and aiming for an October Q4 2024 release.
