Fight MND is the public face of the Cure for MND Foundation, and are the charity that I raise funds and awareness for. MND stands for Motor Neurone Disease. It is also known as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Over the last several years, as a result of a number of fundraising campaigns (such as a the yearly FreezeMND at the MCG), they have contributed millions to research to find a cure for this cruel bastard of a disease.
Podcasts I listen to:
The Howie Games (PodcastOne Page) (Subscribe: iTunes) – Where the biggest names in the world of sport go one-on-one with sports journalist Mark Howard. From ultimate highs to tear-jerking lows, Howie lifts the lid on the real stories behind the headlines. He sits down with the biggest names in Australian & world sport, finding out how they started out, what makes them tick, how they deal with the big wins and the big losses, and how they take on sport and life from here.
Warmshowers Bike Life (ART19 page) (Subscribe: RSS)
Tahverlee brings the stories of touring cyclists and hosts from around the globe together, to share knowledge and experiences of Warmshowers.org Foundation community.
37 Degrees Latitude (Podfollow page) (Subscribe: Apple | Google | Spotify | RSS)
If geography is destiny, there must be something special about 37 degrees latitude. At 37˚S, you’ll find Melbourne, Australia; at 37˚N, you’ll find Silicon Valley (and Area 51, too 🛸). In this podcast, U.S. Consul General Michael Kleine meets the Australian founders and entrepreneurs who cut a path between 37˚ N & S and found capital, partners, markets and success in the United States. Michael is a career Foreign Service Officer currently serving as U.S. Consul General in Melbourne. As a failed founder (remember Mike’s Mugs?) turned diplomat, Michael has a deep-seated interest in entrepreneurship, a fascination with innovation, and a passion for the U.S.-Australia relationship. A big thanks to Courtney Carthy of Mushroom Group for producing the series; U.S. Mission Australia staff Nicola Taylor, Gabrielle Connellan, Jacob Goldschlager for editorial producing; and Tim Dolstra for artwork. Melbourne’s own Jack Bourke of City Calm Down for creating the original soundtrack.
