Blokepedia launches new web-series to support the health and wellbeing of Australian men



Blokepedia is continuing its work in creating positive change for men’s health and wellbeing with the launch of a new web-series that sets out to explore some of the issues and life events affecting men across Australia.

Hosted by entertainer Jimmy Rees, the 10-part series will feature guest appearances from experts and extraordinary everyday men, discussing a range of topics including fatherhood, communication in relationships and social connection.

The title of the show, Jimmy’s Shed not only shares its name with its host but also has an extra special meaning that captures what the series is about for Blokepedia Managing Director, Josh Quarmby.

“My grandfather, Jimmy, had a huge shed at their family home in Junee.  It was that space in which my Pa would do his thinking and tinkering. When the family were together, Pa’s shed was where we’d all congregate. It was a very special space for me growing up. It was a place of connection, learning and storytelling”, he said.

With EML’s support, Jimmy’s Shed aims to address key men’s health issues and provide viewers with tools and resources to enhance their individual health and wellbeing.

“We are proud to support the wonderful work Blokepedia is doing with businesses and the community to improve the lives of Australian men” said David Fryar, Group Executive – New Markets, EML.


The web-series launches on Thursday 4 June and can be viewed via
