Talkshow: MediaMeiden

  • Date: 08 March 19:30 - 20:00
  • Location: Beeld & Geluid Den Haag

Media girls Fanny van de Reijt and Tamar Bot, known for their podcast of the same name, are coming to The Hague! On International Women's Day, March 8, they will be guests at Beeld & Geluid in The Hague. In an upbeat talk show with presenter Bert van Leeuwen (Het Familiediner) they will talk about their book 'Almost nothing happens by chance', about their lives as Hilversum-based editors.

What is prepping and is it really the same as fluffing? How do you call off a BN'er half an hour before the broadcast? How do you get your guest to deliver, and why do editors send each other pies? And of course the question ... are women bossing men around? That and much more will be discussed on March 8 in The Hague.

For those who don't happen to have Almost Nothing Happens yet, it will be on sale this evening. And afterwards the Mediameids will be ready to sign your copy.


Tamar Bot and Fanny van de Reijt write candidly and humorously about their experiences behind the scenes of the daily talk show. At a time when there is increasing criticism of the work culture in the TV world, these seasoned editors report on the Hilversum snake pit from the inside.

In Almost nothing happens by accident it all comes together: the good, the bad, the glam.
