Childproof: The Podcast
Childproof is an unproduced TV sitcom written by Tony Martin and Sarina Rowell. The six episodes were performed live at the 2017 Melbourne Fringe and then released as a podcast. The cast included Tony Martin, Geraldine Quinn, Roz Hammond, Andrew McClelland, Damian Cowell, Cristina Laria, Djovan Caro and Lachy Hulme, alongside narrator Jay Mueller and a gaggle of guests.
It concerns those controversial types, the ‘childfree by choice’. They've been called ‘selfish’, ‘immature’, ‘unfulfilled’ and even ‘unAustralian’ – by their own families! Out of step with a world that exalts the traditional family unit above all else, Ian and Jennifer are also battling extinction in their workplaces – commercial radio and book publishing.
Childproof was named Best Comedy Podcast in the 2018 Australian Podcast Awards, announced in Melbourne on 5 May 2018.
Congratulations to the entire cast, as well as our live audience over three nights at the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2017, who made everything possible.
