About us

Three Gates Media is Meri Fatin and Marnie Richardson.  When we were forming this idea for a business with Anita Bennetts we came across a saying “Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates.  Is it true?  Is it kind?  Is it necessary?“ It felt like a good fit so that’s where we got our name.  Three Gates Media is a place you know you can come for good stories.  We won’t be chasing the press releases, stars or ambulances.  You and your imagination will guide us. Our stories will be local and global.

We need all ears to the ground.  

Podcasts have reignited our love of a well-told tale, and one of the disadvantages of the frenetic news cycle is that plenty of great stories aren’t ever heard.   They either take too long to tell or they don’t feature someone we already know. Our first podcast: Rare Air, changes that.  But the Rare Air Podcast is just the beginning.  In the long term, Three Gates Media will combine a range of podcasts with long form journalism, photo essays, blogs, videos and graphic art, made in Western Australia for a global audience.  

If you think you can support the Three Gates vision creatively, financially or with actual voices we’d love to talk.

Thanks for being here now. Meri and Marnie
