During lockdown Nick and Rebecca decided on a new project, one that kept social distancing realistic, but didn’t compromise on story and characters. Their love of coffee provided the perfect setting to allow a diverse range of stories to be created, and a multitude of characters ready to be heard. The Podcast format seemed perfect for such an idea, allowing audiences to inhabit a familiar setting, while themselves enjoy a cuppa and being a fly on the wall as various conversations are explored.


Nick Bacash

Co-creator of ‘Babble and Froth’

Writer, Director, Producer, Sound Engineer

Co-creator of ‘Babble and Froth’, Nick trained at the Melbourne Actors Studio, then left for London to pursue his passion for performing. After two years, several shows – one that was awarding winning ‘Sweet As’ – and an expiring visa, Nick returned to Melbourne where he continued his career, expanding to Television where he appeared in Neighbours and various commercials. 

A natural progression for Nick was in developing content, where he co-created theatre project ‘Stolen Moments’ – a monthly showcase of short scenes, that was performed in a theatre Nick and Rebecca built atop of a pub; now inspiring the format for ‘Babble and Froth’.

Moving back to London Nick continued pursuing his passion for developing content, where he produced and directed various projects with Huawei, Olympics, HSBC, Dove, Harper Collins, and worked with talented actors like Helena Christensen and David Walliams.

Never stopping his writing and passion for acting, Nick is excited to launch Babble and Froth, a scripted comedy/drama audio series set within a bustling local cafe, where audiences are invited to be a fly on the wall and experience the diversity of individual conversations with each episode.
