I’m Josh Janssen. I live in Melbourne, Australia.
I started freelancing when I was 14 years old (15 years ago) as a video editor.
Since then, I’ve leaned into the tension of finding creative fulfilment, whilst making a living doing it.
I’ve had a bunch on fun. Worked as a Digital Content Producer for a national radio show here in Australia, and spent three months travelling around the world capturing video stories for a tech company.
Made a short documentary on fireworks in the Philippines, wrote for my own tech blog, had a podcast — and had lot of other ideas.
Made a few of them, failed, succeeded, quit and relaunched.
I love nostalgia, am obsessed with the future and try to be comfortable with the present.
In January of 2018, I started a project that would change my life. The Daily Talk Show. It’s a podcast, but it’s a lot more than that too.
My mate Tommy and I are on a mission to create one of the best media brands in Australia. It started off pretty casual. Now we’ve done over 500 episodes. We haven’t missed a day. We do it seven days a week and we’ve committed to ten years.
Talking long term commitment, I have an amazing girlfriend, Bree. We started dating when we were in high school. We’ve been together for 12 years!
We love to travel and to work. It’s fun visiting new places and then coming home to bring the learnings in to our everyday lives.
I’m very grateful that I get to share a life with great people.
If you’d like to say g’day, please send me an email. I’d love to hear from you!
