Home and Away actress Christie Hayes and husband Justin Coombes-Pearce are launching a new podcast, Talk Thirty To Me.

How did you feel when you turned 30? That’s exactly what the the podcast will discuss in weekly episodes.

Fronted by actress and award-winning radio personality Christie Hayes and husband, comedian, TV and radio presenter Justin Coombes-Pearce, Talk Thirty To Me is part of the Acast Creator Network.

Upcoming guests include Georgia Love, Tammin Sursok, Lola Berry, James Mathieson, Madeleine West, and Rebekah Elmaloglou.

Christie previously co-hosted the podcast Year One for Mamamia. Justin’s radio industry career spans 20 years, in which time he’s received more than 15 ACRA nominations. According to the host himself, however, he’s “only here because he’s married to Christie.”

Christie Hayes: “Turning 30 is a big life milestone and can often come with a lot of noise about what you’ve done and where you’re heading.

"We wanted to create Talk Thirty To Me to have open conversations about what we’ve learned along the way and hopefully our listeners can either relate, find reassurance, or learn something from our experiences. We'll laugh, cry and learn as we talk about why life really does begin at 30.”

Jordon Lott, Acast’s content development manager for Australia and New Zealand: “Talk Thirty To Me speaks to millennials in such a relatable way, it’s quickly going to become everyone’s go-to podcast for advice, laughter and connection.

"While 30 can seem like a scary number, Christie and Justin are providing light at the end of the tunnel for younger millennials like myself — and podcasting is the perfect medium for these conversations, because you just can’t beat the level of engagement it provides."
