The Spinoff and Barkers are proud to present a new seven-part podcast series: The Get. Each week Canon award winning journalist Naomi Arnold will interview some of New Zealand’s best feature writers and news journalists about how they hunted down the biggest stories of their careers.
“On a given week, from time to time, I think well, it’s not bad for one’s career to have the occasional click in these rather terrifying media times. So children’s author one week, sure, but I’d be quite happy to do a TV [person] the next week because a) they’re of interest, b) they’re going to get shitloads of clicks.”
Adam Dudding is a senior reporter for Fairfax Media. His previous jobs include Sunday Star-Times news editor, Guardian sub-editor and double-glazing salesman. He lives in Auckland with his wife and two children. Here he talks about how he finds stories, why he doesn’t tell his editors when he’s got a good one.
