Witty banter over the vegetables at Hawkes Farm in Boneo has led Campbell Stevens and Toby Nixon to launch a podcast. What We Think is the Peninsula equivalent of Hamish and Andy. The pair’s relaxed attitude and comedic approach to trivial and not-so-trivial topics in life has the listener feeling as if they’re simply around friends at their local pub. But is it as entertaining for Campbell and Toby off-air? 

“It definitely is,” said 25-year-old Campbell. “We stand around and talk rubbish even more so when we’re off-air, so it definitely comes naturally. We’re getting the hang of it and just speaking off the cuff rather than getting bogged down in trying to be funny.”

With several episodes available already to grace our ears, we’re pretty grateful that the podcast came to fruition off the back of a joke and lockdown boredom. The pair of pranksters would find themselves saying that because their conversations were so comical, they should start a podcast and people would definitely listen to them. They had a point.

“We talked about getting microphones and Campbell said, ‘Yeah, we will talk about it later’,” said 20-year-old Toby. “Then when we talked about it later on, I’d already purchased them.”

Campbell had been at Hawkes Farm for six years when Toby joined the crew two years ago. From here, it was love at first sight and a bromance soon blossomed. The first few episodes see the guys speaking from the heart on tough and trivial topics while providing some laughs and positivity, which is priceless during these tough times. Topics of conversation emerge from concepts that they encounter in their daily routine that can cause debate between the two and their audience. Subjects range from the classic “Does tomato sauce belong in the pantry or fridge?” to which television show reigns supreme – Friends or Seinfeld. For just a couple of mates mucking around and creating laughs, they’re beyond thrilled at the response thus far and are appreciating the engagement of their friends and the wider community. 

The What We Think team are more than ready to engage with their minds and hearts as they exchange ideas, thoughts and concerns with each other and their listeners. They share their energy and individuality as they speak from their heart with courage, authenticity and honesty – and a hell of a lot of jokes. On top of their infectious laughs, they confess they may not always get it right and you might not always agree with their point of view, but they’re ready for the journey because they’re ever so passionate about the game – the game of life. 

“We don’t really have a goal other than to get people to have a smile,” said Campbell. “Obviously the bigger we get, the greater our ability to have an impact is, but if we get one person a week to smile, have a laugh or send us a message then we’ve reached our goal. We have also talked about launching a couple of hats or beanies to raise some money for mental health, but other than that it’s just to start conversations and provide something for people to laugh at.”
