Nailed It!

When

Forget bitcoin: the currency of the future is the hot take. Like the overalled gold prospector of the past, the opinion columnist of today mines content as if from thin air – emerging with that most coveted nugget: clickbait.

As the ultimate experiment in dragging pageviews offline, Nailed It! assembles Australia’s finest comedians, journalists and everything in between – and copy/pastes them onto a pulpit from which to bluster, bully and BS. Forget sincerity or nuance; how will each speaker suppress their most deeply held convictions, and give their all to serving up the most shareable content?

Host James Colley introduces Cal Wilson, Tom Walker, Lucinda Price and Sinead Stubbins as they give voice to their most unexpected thought bubbles – all with the steady compass of a columnist ten minutes shy of deadline. Don’t read the comments.

Presented in partnership with The Toff in Town.
