I’m a critic who has haunted RTRFM since 2010, where I debuted on Breakfast with reviews of Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom and Glee: S1. It’s all been downhill since there. I co-host Movie Squad with Tristan Fidler, during which you can hear me argue about putting more Miley Cyrus (circa Her Dead Petz) on the playlist.

How did you become involved in the station?

Serendipitously! At uni, I studied Broadcast Journalism under the tutelage of former Breakfast host Peter Barr. Later, I would feature him as the voice of reason in my documentary on the Perth music scene. (It seemed sensible at the time.) Then, in 2010, having worked as a film critic for a couple of years, RTRFM summoned me to dust off the DVD on the Radio segment, where I was reunited with my old sensei on the air. After five years of baffling in-jokes and frequent MASH references, DVD on the Radio was retired and I was honoured to join the proud lineage of Movie Squad critics, for Breakfast With Caitlin. You can now hear me on Friday mornings with Tristan Fidler and current Breakfast host Taylah Strano. The in-jokes remain baffling.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

  • Weezer – Pinkerton
  • Kanye West – The College Dropout
  • David Bowie – Station to Station
  • Belle and Sebastian – If You’re Feeling Sinister
  • Jon Brion – Meaningless

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

The RTRFM community, of course. I have such fond memories of goofing around with good friends on the air, volunteering in the Radiothon phone room with strangers (and then grabbing a bite to eat) and writing inscrutable quiz questions with Tristan. There have been times I’ve sat in the office twiddling my thumbs awaiting phone calls from tardy interview subjects, spending my time instead making conversation with RTRFM presenters, staff and sometimes even listeners, as they wander through RTRFM’s corridors. The second best thing is the free biscuits.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?

I once had to camp out in the studio for three hours, in anticipation of a frustratingly late call from Paul Thomas Anderson.

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

Soulsides, because… have you heard Soulsides?

What do you do in real life?

I’m editor of Student Edge, where I am also head critic (of film, music and, increasingly, Kanye West sermons). I regularly contribute to The Guardian. My spare time is spent with my wife and our sneakers.
