History of Preachrs Podcast


In 2010 Benjamin Maio Mackay started The Preachrs Podcast that focused on all things Doctor Who. Over its four year run as a Doctor Who podcast the site reached over 25 million hits and Benjamin was invited to present programs about Doctor Who for ABC Radio. Benjamin interviewed over 70 people from the world of Doctor Who, including Paul McGann, Peter Davison, Caitlin Blackwood, Kata O’Mara, Anneke Wills and Nicholas Briggs. Benjamin also chatted to a number of celebrity fans including Wil Anderson, Justin Hamilton, Andrew Hansen and Adam Richard. For the podcast Benjamin produced and acted in 24 Original Fan Fiction Audio Dramas and wrote many of the original scripts.

Thanks to the generous sponsors of the original podcast: Big Finish Productions, Mad Zombie Collectables and the Doctor Who Club of Australia, and his supplier BBC on DVD AU, Benjamin was able to review numerous products that related to the world of Doctor Who.

He also wrote and toured four stage shows about the Time Lord. Two were major touring productions (50 Years of Doctor Who: Preachrs Podcast Live! and 50 Years of Doctor Who: Preachrs Podcast Live 2!) that played to sold out Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney audiences. Benjamin was joined on the tours by actor and comedian Rob Lloyd (who also guested on the podcast).

Benjamin also wrote two “convention shows,” one for the widely acclaimed Convention Oz Comic Con and one for a 50th Anniversary celebration event.
