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 (as you can tell, they’re mostly all focused on sport!)
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
Inside the GIANTS (Whooshkaa Page) (Subscribe: RSS) – Inside the GIANTS is a podcast channel that allows the GIANTS – the AFL‘s 18th club – to tell its stories. In the series ‘The Originals’ and ‘The Leaders’ football fans get to hear stories that have never been told before, from the players and staff that have been at the club since its foundation in 2010.
The Footy Phil (Audioboom Page) (Subscribe: Apple Podcasts or RSS) – GWS Giants co-captain Phil Davis sits down each week with Alison Zell to re-cap the GIANTS’ latest game and give his views of the all the hottest issues in the AFL.
Dyl & Friends (Whooshkaa Page) (Subscribe: Apple Podcasts or RSS) – Dyl & Friends has been described as a ‘unique, insightful, entertaining and pioneering conversational podcast.’* Dylan Buckley currently plays for the GWS Giants in the AFL, after 6 seasons with the Carlton Football Club. In the podcast Buckley invites interesting and notable guests to come on the show to share their stories that people haven’t heard before in a humorous and lighthearted chat, with plenty of banter mixed in as well. The show aims to uncover the different sides and unheard perspectives from people who are often portrayed from a singular perspective. *Description provided by Dylan Buckley’s mum.
Police Tape (Podtail Page) (Subscribe: iTunes or RSS) – Real police. Real stories. In their own words. We go behind the police tape with five police officers as they reveal the incredible true tales behind some of Australia’s most extraordinary criminal cases. Unscripted, unedited in a no-holds-barred debrief with host Merrick Watts and The Daily Telegraph’s crime editor Mark Morri.
