Broadcaster, blogger, comedian and writer, Paul Verhoeven, chatted up a storm with Danny Clayton in the Build Sydney Studio.

Up for discussion was Paul’s many talents and varied career, which includes hosting Triple J radio, writing his book, Loose Units, and playing the quiz master on kids TV show Steam Punks.

He was even named second runner up in Cleo's Top 50 Bachelors of the Year for 2011.

“My agent describes me as a ‘multi-hyphenate,’” he told Danny, before admitting that both he and his career “have ADD.”

“I genuinely can’t think of many things I haven’t done,” he said.

Paul went on to reveal that he’s known to drop everything to do something he’s passionate about - even if it means ducking out to watch a Marvel film on the morning of his wedding.

“I was over in Paris getting married [and] my friend Adam and I got invited to the French premiere of Avengers: Endgame and we had to sit there and do this emotional math, like ‘is it cool if we leave on the morning before the wedding?’”

Luckily, his now-wife Tegan Higginbotham said ‘yes’ to both Paul’s last-minute movie date and at the altar later that day.

Paul also chatted about his new book, Loose Units, a true crime/biography based on his dad John’s time as a police officer back in the 1980s, and inspired by the pair’s podcast of the same name.

“Dad was a very clean cop in a very dirty time, a time when you could just make the rules up as you go along, which when you have a gun is kind of a bad idea,” he laughed.
