“This Freelancer Life” is Reels Asia’s podcast for the creative freelancer community in Singapore that works in the advertising/ marketing/film/video industry. Our guests come from a wide range of freelancers, including directors for films, commercials, documentaries, corporates, through to voice talents, hosts, actors, directors of photography, video editors, sound designers, photographers – anyone who works in this industry and is willing to sit and talk about their life as a freelancer!
We discuss the reason why they chose to build a career in the creative arts, the advice they’d give a newcomer, and hear their surprising thoughts about what career advice they would have given to themselves if they could go back in time, and the part of their professional life that they couldn’t have imagined when they embarked on their journey.

Season 2 Episode 2 – Daphne Lim
In this episode, we talk to a current affairs radio DJ and hugely popular voice over talent. She’s worked in video production before changing her career path and hosting the morning show on MediaCorp’s English language talk radio channel, 938NOW.
A popular voice over talent, she’s recorded countless ads for huge international companies through to brand new start-ups. (Apologies for my very hoarse voice!)
Season 2 Episode 1 – Mike Kasem
We talk with Mike Kasem, one of the original MTV VJs when MTV Asia launched in 1995 from Singapore. In a career that has spanned over 2 decades, he is now back to his true love of radio and co-hosts the breakfast show on Gold 905.
He discusses the true value of fame, why you need to keep sharp and hone you skills when you’re not working and gives a timely stock tip – to buy Apple!
