The-Get-front_page_002

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. 

“You can have a really cool life in this career – I have, anyway. And no-one ever said that [when I was] studying.”

Don Rowe, 22, is an Auckland-based freelancer and staff feature writer at The Spinoff. He’s had his work published in 1972, Mana, New Zealand Geographic, Sky Sport, and Metro, and was Student Journalist of the Year at the Canon Media Awards in 2014. He was also awarded Best Sentence at the Wintec Press Club in 2015. See more of his work on this very website and his own blog, and find him on Twitter at @Don_Rowe.
