Episode 112: Robert Whittaker (Part A)

#TheHowieGames | The first man from Australia / New Zealand to hold a UFC Championship belt, Robert Whittaker is as friendly away from the octagon, as he is fierce in it. Mixed martial arts is a very tough caper. Rob’s descriptions of the physical and mental stress he puts himself through, both in preparing to fight, then during the bouts themselves, left me in awe. I’m often asked by listeners to recommend an episode. This is one. ❤️

Episode 111: Martin Tyler (Part B)

#TheHowieGames | This week, one of the most recognisable voices in world sport. A man that is synonymous with football, Martin Tyler. Like many in the media, Martin had a sliding doors moment that led him onto the path he has so successfully forged in broadcasting. In this episode, Martin describes in detail how he went from being a footballer himself, to spending over 40 years talking about the game and its players. We cover so much in this episode…from the very first match he called, to World Cups, his famous Manchester City v QPR call in the dying moments of the 2011/12 EPL season, the keys to broadcasting and so much more. The man is a legend.❤️

Episode 110: Marc Leishman (Part A)

#TheHowieGames | Marc Leishman is a 5-time winner on the USPGA tour. Born and raised in Warrnambool, marc has retained that low key, friendly, self-deprecating country approach to life. He may be playing week-in week-out on the world’s most storied courses, against the likes of Tiger, Phil, Dustin, Rory and crew - for mega dollars - but by gee, the man known as 'Leish' seems unaffected by it all. This is a story about golf, what it takes to succeed, and a look behind the scenes of the biggest tournaments on the planet. It is also a story of shock and real fear as Marc talks about the health issues that threatened the life of his wife Audrey. Those feelings thankfully being replaced by joy, happiness and gratitude, when Audrey fought her way back to full health.  Oh, Marc also owns his own beer company… Leishman Lager. How good! ❤️

#TheHowieGames | Tony Hawk. Tony Hawk! BANG!!  This man transcends his sport. The greatest skateboarder the world has ever seen. Tony is the undoubted GOAT of his domain.  "The Birdman" revolutionised his sport, both on his board and in the boardroom. From being an outlier in an outlying sport, Tony went on to pioneer athlete involvement in video games, completed a ten year quest to perform the 900, appeared on the Simpsons, dominated competition and basically became the face of so called "extreme sports".  This man is a cultural phenomenon.  Still pushing himself on his board today, Tony has recently re-released Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 which is available on PS4, Xbox, and PC, all remastered and better than you remember…check them out!  We couldn't be more stoked to have tony on the show. ❤️

Michael’s words and thoughts on the scourge that is racism, left me questioning a lot of things about the world in which we live, and frankly, how I, as a white male, view it.  Since I spoke to Michael his explanations and hopes have been a topic around the dinner table with my wife and kids and I really hope it becomes a talking point with your family. ❤️

From his early years, mind games when taking on Tiger, dealing with pressure, the pain of the 2012 Open and plenty more.  But the ep culminates with one of the most enjoyable conversations I've ever had on the pod, as Adam takes us through the closing stages of his history making Masters win in 2013 - at times shot by shot.  Here’s an upfront guarantee…it will give you goosebumps. ❤️ This episode was made possible by the good people at Uniqlo, for whom Adam is a global ambassador.

Episode 99: Lauren Jackson (Part A)

#TheHowieGames | In her day, Lauren Jackson was universally regarded as the best player in women’s basketball.  Her honour role is outrageous. 4 Olympic medals (3 silvers and a bronze), a World Championship, countless domestic titles all around the globe, MVP’s and Flag Bearer at the London Olympics. This is a serious resume.  But, Lauren’s journey wasn’t always an easy one. Along with the trophies, lifelong friendships and the joy she got from the game - of which she is extremely grateful - LJ also battled injury and mental health issues along the way.  In her own, understated way, Lauren doesn’t shy away from the difficulties she has overcome in this episode. Listening to her speak, it left me with the general thought that this makes her achievements, both on and off the court, even greater in my eyes.  LJ is a star ❤️

Episode 98: Kevin Muscat (Prelude - The Impact of Coronavirus)

#TheHowieGames | Kevin Muscat has been on an incredible football journey. From Wembley to World Cup qualifiers, being labelled a hard man, that penalty at the MCG, Melbourne Victory and coaching in the A-League, Kevin has seen it all. But what I love about this episode is when Kev talks about throwing it all in for one, gutsy, almighty punt. A punt that which paid off in spades when Kev was named manager of a European football club. Kevin Muscat dreams big. I hope this ep helps you do the same. ❤️

Episode 97: Nat Fyfe (Prelude - The Impact of Coronavirus)

#TheHowieGames | Nat Fyfe is one of my favourite footballers.  A two-time Brownlow Medallist and captain of Fremantle, he is a great player to watch and an exciting player to call. But more than that, I enjoy all the other sides of Nat that you don’t see on field.  His love of surfing, his off season travelling, driving big rigs, business dealings and his generally inquisitive nature.  That’s all discussed in this episode, as well as how fanatical Nat is about preparation, what he’s learnt about leadership and what he’s been forced to overcome on his football journey.  Above everything though, I wanted to get Nat on the pod as he has always struck me as an adventurous soul in a world where adventurous spirts don’t get as much love as I reckon they should.  So, here's to all you adventurers out there! 💜

#TheHowieGames | Finally, we've come good with a rugby league guest. I know the wait has been long, but hopefully it's been worth it!  For mine, there’s no better person to speak league with than premiership player and legendary coach, Craig Bellamy.  For a man that has achieved so much in the game, Craig is not a man we know a great deal about.  In this episode, Craig speaks in depth about coaching, the Big 3 in Cronk, Smith and Slater and the effect the salary cap scandal had on him and the Storm. We also discuss his upbringing, the loss of his father, his playing days and plenty more.  Stay safe ❤️

#TheHowieGames | Patty Mills is one of a kind. I came away from this episode thinking he is a very special person.  If you combine Patty's background, his upbringing, his desire to succeed, his leadership, his work as a role mode and a spokesman, his empathy and care for others, his love and sharing of his culture and his ability to hit massive 3 point bombs….Well, all that makes for a very powerful combination!  Most people would be more than happy to say they are an NBA champion. But that's only a small part of who Patty is.  This show has always aimed to revolve around the themes of inspiration and motivation. In that light, I can think of no better guest than the man you are about to hear.  Stay safe.  ❤️

Episode 94: Ian Smith (Prelude - The Impact of Coronavirus)

#TheHowieGames | In the heady days of the 1980’s, where New Zealand were rolling out in the brown and beige kit, Ian Smith was a mainstay of the Kiwi team. A wicketkeeper and lower order bat, Ian played 63 tests and 98 ODIs for the black caps.  After retiring from the game, Ian took up cricket and rugby broadcasting. Due to his passion, excitement and energy, he is my favourite cricket broadcaster. Smithy is a gun! This ep goes back to the days of the underarm ball and Channel Nine's "golden goblets" for player of the match! It ends with Ian’s crowning glory… His iconic call of the 2019 world cup final between England and his beloved New Zealand. The big man delivers in spades in this ep! Stay safe crew. ❤️

A Le Mans winner, a world sports car champion and a starter in 158 Formula One Grand Prix. Since then, alongside the great Murray Walker, his voice has become synonymous with F1. Martin has some brilliant stories to tell. F1 in the 80's and 90's, huge crashes, racing the likes of Michael Schumacher and Ayrton Senna and working alongside Murray Walker. His highlights and lowlights from his famous grid walks prior to F1 race starts involve some classic yarns. This is an ep with everything, from one of the best broadcasters in world sport.

#TheHowieGames | Karrie Webb is viewed by many as Australia’s greatest ever golfer. With 7 Major victories and over 70 Tour wins, she is a dominant force. Not one to typically like talking about herself, in this episode Karrie explains how she went from a small North Queensland town to the top of the golfing world and the effect it had on her, both positive and negative. There are a few tears, lots of laughs and a fascinating look into the life of an athlete we don’t know a great deal about considering her standing in the game. Karrie Webb rocks!

Episode 83: Mike Hussey (Part A)

#TheHowieGames | This week, one of the most frequently requested guests we get from you good people out there, "Mr Cricket" himself, Mike Hussey.  The underlining theme of this chat is what drove Mike to achieve such wonderful success. The answer may well surprise you, as Huss was driven, in many respects, by self-doubt. The way he used what many would see as a huge negative and somehow turned it into an even bigger positive, it's a pretty unique approach. It certainly worked.  Behind the scenes with one of Australia's greatest cricket teams. What more could ya want!

Episode 82: Grant Hackett (Part A)

#TheHowieGames | Grant Hackett is a triple Olympic gold medalist, a giant of the pool. In my view, he is also the most focused, determined, driven athlete this podcast has ever featured. Grant’s views on races that he didn’t win, which are brutal, highlight why he was so good. For those wanting to know what type of sacrifices are required to truly be the best, this is the episode for you. These days Grant is in a great place. A successful businessman, a doting dad, relaxed  family man and all round good bloke.  I hope you love this episode as much as I do.

Episode 81: Fawad Ahmed (Part A)

#TheHowieGames | Fawad Ahmed is a wonderful man with a remarkable story. Born in Pakistan, he always dreamed of playing cricket for his country of birth. That story was never to be, with Fawad leaving his homeland fearing for his life. Arriving in Australia Fawad had his cricket dream… but precious little else. Seeking asylum, Fawad went through all manner of highs and lows, including a 10 month period where he went from playing cricket for Hoppers Crossing, a suburban team in Melbourne’s west, to playing for Australia! This is a story that defies belief.
