Meet Lynne and Rachel

Hello and welcome to The Content Byte! We’re Lynne Testoni and Rachel Smith, your weekly co-hosts… as you’d know if you’re a regular listener. Of course, between all the chats and fabulous guests we have day jobs too.

Lynne is a senior journalist and content producer who specialises in design, homes and food. Rachel is a senior journalist and copywriter who writes for lifestyle, business and finance clients. She also runs Rachel’s List, a popular jobs board and community for freelancers.

We’ve known each other for many years – and started The Content Byte in 2019, with episodes dropping every Monday. We also collaborate on webinars, online events and face-to-face get-togethers, too. We just finished the first year of our biggest endeavour yet – The Content Byte Summit. It’s happening in Sydney again in September 2024, and we hope to see you there!

Like a mentor in a podcast

The Content Byte has so much helpful, actionable advice and insights from both Rachel and Lynne and their guests. I've picked up lots of good ideas and reassurance on the challenges of freelancing, plus a few laughs. Feels like conversing with a couple of freelancing friends.


Real, practical tips

Great podcast if you’re a freelance writer of any kind and full of real, practical tips. Rachel and Lynne have a relaxed dynamic and so much real life experience to share, as do their various guests. Especially motivating if you’re starting out - it’s proof it can be done!
