Josh is the host of Afternoons with Josh Szeps on ABC Radio Sydney and the former anchor of Weekend Breakfast on ABC TV.
In New York, Josh was a founding host and producer of HuffPost Live, the multi-award-winning TV network that revolutionised how celebrities and viewers interact.
He hosted over 1,000 hours of live television and attracted literally billions of views thanks to his entertaining and insightful interviews with A-listers like Susan Sarandon, Michael Moore, Dick Cavett, Sir Ian McKellen, Jeff Daniels, Ron Howard, Jeremy Irons, Neil Patrick Harris, Russell Brand and Sheryl Crowe.
Forty million Americans woke up to Josh as a regular contributor on the NBC Today Show. He loomed 120 feet tall on the Times Square jumbotron as he sparred live on his interview show, the Style Series. He became a seven-time guest on the world’s most popular podcast, the Joe Rogan Experience.
Returning to Australia to raise a family, Josh began hosting Ten’s The Project, rumbling with Alan Jones and Penny Wong on ABC TV’s Q&A, and delighting Melbourne Comedy Festival audiences with a feisty show about social media and public shaming. At venues such as the Sydney Opera House, he interviews the likes of Richard Dawkins, Fran Lebowitz, Cornel West, Peter Singer, Jonathan Haidt and Jane Goodall.
Josh’s podcast, Uncomfortable Conversations, is the pre-eminent place for newsmakers, entertainers and thinkers to explore dangerous ideas.
Josh lives in Sydney with his husband and twin toddlers. He loves dogs but finds dolphins smug. He is a professional fellow at the University of Technology, Sydney.
Surprisingly, he hates Scrabble.
