About Us

Dr Tennant's Verbal Highs is a conversational podcast with people who create & innovate in their chosen art form, vocation, back shed, main stage, peer group, or shower cubicle. From a kitchen bench in Auckland, New Zealand, Lewis Tennant explores the lives & thoughts of the likes of musicians, writers, film makers, actors, and comedians... also hosting those that make things happen side of stage, below the line, and under the radar. Though the initial line-up of guests practice in the creative arts or media, the podcast is about people, candid conversations, and interesting observations. In other words hopefully there will be a decent chef on at some point, maybe followed later by a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick maker... Please like /verbalhighspodcast on Facebook & follow @verbalhighs on Twitter, as well as subscribing. Please get involved and leave a comment somewhere as well. And perhaps most importantly, if you like what you hear please click and share individual podcasts or the website in general amongst your electronic friends.
