triple j broadcaster Lewis Hobba (one half of the Hobba and Hing drive show) is the latest guest on our Face The Music podcast.

Speaking in-depth about growing up in the rural Victorian town of Torquay and working his way up into the presenter’s chair at triple j, Lewis cast his eye back over an already impressive creative career, one that’s included creating sketch comedy shows, performing stand-up and doing the hard yards in the broadcasting world.

In addition to hearing about his own history, Lewis made some bold predictions around the triple j Hottest 100 Of The Decade countdown, which was still in the process of wrapping up when the episode was recorded (at the time Lewis was gearing up to announce the winners – something he swore he had no foreknowledge of).

Of course, there was also plenty of chat about Lewis’ love of rap – something that he made clear when he spat some bars on air a few years ago, as well as insight as to his transition from one-half of the beloved ‘Veronica and Lewis’ show to the new and increasingly popular ‘Hobba and Hing’ program (co-hosted by comedian Michael Hing).
