Wednesdays 9am; replay Mondays 9am

Gary Max chats to the people who help shape our Jewish community. Politicians, communal leaders, authors and more are Talking to the Max in between quirky songs and unbelievable tales from the golf course.

Max has a keen understanding of Melbourne’s Jewish community communications needs. He has decades of experience in PR, government and media relations for leading Australian businesses and has been and remains involved in a number of Melbourne Jewish community organisations. 


In Talking to the Max, Gary keeps us up to date with communal issues, news, as well as showcasing achievements of individuals and organisations. The show’s style is light and chatty, but with questions that delve into all the issues.
