All That Glitters is a weekly podcast hosted by three time Olympian Libby Trickett. Each week she sits down with the worlds best retired athletes and explores their transition from the bright lights of competition to the real world. 

    Jharal Yow Yeh

    Jharal Yow Yeh

    Playing for the Brisbane Broncos in 2009. Selected in the Indigenous All Star in 2010. Scoring tries for the Maroons and playing for Australia in 2011. A career ending injury by 2012.

    Jharal Yow Yeh’s meteoric rise in rugby league was cut short when he was just 23 years old by a traumatic compound fracture in his right ankle, while playing, which I vividly remember watching.

    So how does somebody navigate the transition into life after sport, not only when the decision isn’t their own and especially when they seemingly still had so much of their career ahead of them?!

    This conversation with Jharal was incredibly powerful on how difficult that journey can be but also, how much impact a young man can make in normalising conversations around mental health and illness and asking for help, especially amongst other young men.

    I loved this chat with Jharal and I hope you do too!

    David Pocock

    David Pocock

    Growing up in North Queensland in the late 80’s and early 90’s, I can’t say I heard or cared too much about Rugby Union. Even their players I had no interest in, unless it was talking about a league player heading into union.

    But in 2017, I heard a story about a young man by the name of David Pocock who was going to take a year off to focus on his studies. As a former athlete, I couldn’t believe an athlete at the top of their game could have the confidence to take a year out to focus on their studies. It was totally a shock and totally inspiring to me. Something I wish I could have had the confidence to do during my career.

    From then on, I kept an eye on what David was up to, whether it was to do with the stance he was taking with same sex marriage or his conservation work, I admired the things he stood for and his ability to articulate it when athlete’s are barely allowed to comment on sport.

    This conversation was engaging and inspiring and if you don’t feel like changing the world after this chat, then I might argue that you don’t have a pulse!

    Jana Pittman

    Can you imagine, being a world champion hurdler, a two-time Summer Olympian, a Winter Olympian, a doctor, a mum-to-four and in the army reserves?! Today, I speak with Jana Pittman who is LITERALLY ALL OF THESE THINGS!

    Mostly, I ask her how. She was an incredible athlete, who had her fair share of (Jana) dramas, injuries, failures and setbacks and I loved exploring her experiences and understanding how she continues to push herself to achieve.

    Dan Kowalski

    Dan Kowalski

    Daniel Kowalski. Swimming’s Mr Nice Guy.

    When I was growing up, I mostly only admired athletes for their medals. Athletes who won specifically, or broke world records.

    But Dan was different, even though he was an amazingly successful athlete winning medals in 3 individual events at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics - something I could only dream of! More importantly, Dan was kind. He was respectful of his competitors and respected by his peers. That has ALWAYS stuck with me and I believe helped shape who I wanted to be outside of the pool. Because you could be a great competitor and a nice person!

    I really loved my chat with Dan, and I’m sure you’ll see what I’m talking about when you have a listen!

    Lauren Jackson

    This chat with Lauren was absolutely fascinating to me.

    As someone who still misses swimming deeply (especially after coming off the buzz of the Olympics), to hear someone say they don’t miss their sport really surprised me. It’s not something I thought was possible!

    This chat with Lauren was so insightful especially for anyone who appreciates the experiences they’ve been through, and knows they are in a better place now. I always appreciate when people are so open and no ssy and Lauren did not disappoint!

    Lydia Lassila

    Lydia Lassila has come back from injuries and come back from child birth to not only become Australia’s first female winter athlete to compete at five Games but has also become Australia's most-decorated female skier having won gold in 2010 and bronze four years later in Sochi.

    During this time, she also started a business - Body Ice and then a second business Body Ice Women and has recently started her third, Zone by Lydia.

    She’s a remarkable woman who has achieved remarkable things and there is so much that we can all learn from her incredible experiences! Mostly though, she is a bloody cool chick and I loved our chat!

Congratulations

Have loved all your interviews but the David Pocock interview was particularly incredible. Well done!

SimmoneR ,

Love your podcast Libby!

From the first episode I was hooked listening to your authentic conversations with interesting people. You've got the knack for quickly establishing trust and uncovering stories that show the human side to famous athletes. Whilst not an athlete myself, the themes of change, uncovering passions and mental resilience resonate with me and I'm sure thousands of others. I look forward to listening every week! Cheers, Simmone
