Monique Bowley

ABC / Former director of podcasts
Monique Bowley is an Australian podcaster, broadcaster, radio producer and writer who went on a reality TV cooking show and didn't cry or use the word "journey" once. She's spent over a decade years working in radio, both commercially and for the ABC. She built Australia's largest independent podcast network and the largest women's podcast network in the world, the Mamamia Podcast Network. Over the past two and a half years Mamamia has published 19 separate podcasts, and featured 24 female hosts. As a writer, her columns have been read across News.com.au and Mamamia, and her weekly podcast newsletter has been named "not spam" by several credible email accounts. A keen baker, she won a Blue Ribbon for Anzac Biscuits at the Royal Adelaide Show. A former CWA Adelaide Branch President, she helped develop a best selling cookbook for the Country Women's Association in South Australia.  She came fourth in Channel Nine's The Great Australian Bakeoff on television, and ran a small food van for a while, but all anyone remembers her for is for handing out lolly bags at The Logies and for that time she interviewed Amy Schumer and made a giant knob of herself. She's a proud supporter of Dulcie's Shop of Real Opportunity, a vintage clothing bus that raises money for the homeless in South Australia, Fred's Van, and Catherine House. She lives with her Bearded Collie, Maggie, in Melbourne, and is married to a man she met in the ABC kitchenette after she asked to borrow a teabag.
