We hear their voices from 6 a.m. so we know it's an early start with a lot of laughs, but what is it really like to spend a day with Dan and Maz from with Hit104.1 2DayFM's
The Dan and Maz Show?
"There's no such thing as a usual day for us!" says Maz. From chatting with
Britney Spears and setting world records (really!) to photo shoots and pirate space parties — POPSUGAR Australia hung out with our favourite breakfast radio team for a day to see what they get up to.
That's THREE FORTY IN THE MORNING. That's what time Maz wakes up every day. Can you imagine?
Dan has a tiny bit more of a sleep in — he leaps out of bed at 4:05 a.m. and rolls into a taxi to the studio at 4:20 a.m.

Now's when the team rallies around, has a cuppa and some toast, and plans for the day.

Will they do it?

"I don't think anyone understands quite how many meetings we go to." says Dan.

Celebrity Interviews Are Pre-Recorded
Dan & Maz have interviewed everyone from Peter Dinklage to Rachael Finch.
We got to listen in on an interview with
Britney Spears, where she told us all about painting the walls of her house in the nude. No joke.

Dan and Maz leave the studio and head along to the latest film screenings and events, gathering all the info they need to create tomorrow's show.

After work Maz likes to hit the gym to stay awake so she gets a good night's sleep. "I have a similar schedule to a toddler, really. I have to try not to nap and I have to eat dinner by 6 p.m."

Dan has a slightly different method of winding down. "If I have a coffee before a nap" he explains, "I don't sleep too long because the caffeine wakes me up!"

Normally in bed by this time with a good book or a relaxing meditation session, tonight Dan and Maz are hosting a space pirate rooftop party, which is as awesome as it sounds.
Then it's back up at 3:40 a.m to start all over again — what a day!
