SPECIAL: The Green Room End Of Year Wrap 2021 Part 1 | 17-12-2021
2021 is a year that most won't - or desperately will want to - forget. But for host of The Green Room podcast Tiana Speter, it's been a year of change, including her stepping into the role as host of the podcast following the departure of founding host Neil Griffiths back in May of this year.What has followed has been a rollercoaster of laughs, learning and lots of chats, with Speter clocking up 31 regular episodes in just over six months at the helm, including majority of those episodes taking place remotely due to the extensive Sydney lockdowns starting not long after Speter took over the show. Add in two COVID-19 music industry specials, which collectively totaled just shy of three and a half hours worth of content, and an extra bonus today: a "Best of 2021" special to take a look back at the year that was - and it's safe to say The Green Room podcast has had an eventful but ultimately enjoyable year despite the odds.Today, join Tiana Speter reminiscing about some of her favourite (and most memorable) Green Room moments during her tenure, as well as some from earlier in the year, including an array of musicians, actors and comedians who continued to tell their stories during what eventuated as an extremely trying year for creatives around the globe.Grab your AAA pass and come backstage - we're entering The Green Room.PART ONE:When Tiana Speter stepped into the role as host for The Green Room podcast, little did she know she'd be undertaking much of the series remotely during substantial lockdown, while interviewing some of her heroes & new friends along the way. Today in part two of this two-part special, we take a look back at actors and comedians who joined The Green Room in 2021, as well as a look at the two-part COVID-19 music industry special released back in August, and a rapid fire round of some of Speter's guests sharing what they like to have in their very own green rooms when they're on the road.
