    Ash Perrow: On What It’s Like To Have A Near-Death Experience

    Ash Perrow: On What It’s Like To Have A Near-Death Experience

    What happens when you die? It’s a question all of us ask ourselves at some point. But what if I was to tell you there are people who’ve died and come back who believe they know the answer. For those who’ve had a near-death experience, life is often never the same again. More importantly, they no longer fear death.
     
    This was the case with today’s guest, Ash Perrow. In November 2016 the Sydney musician had a near-death experience after routine back surgery went horribly wrong. Before blacking out Perrow remembers a doctor saying “he doesn’t have a pulse”. What happened next made Perrow re-evaluate his view of the world and his place in it and it made him assess his life and what he wants out of it.

He also takes us behind the curtain to reveal what it’s like to deal with some of the egos that dominate football at the highest level and discusses the crucial role an S & C coach plays in building a winning culture.

Love it

Finally a great podcast that speaks so openly about men’s issues that for so long has been considered taboo subjects. To hear it also from men who are leaders in their fields and household names gives me a lot of confidence knowing no matter who we are of what we’re doing, we are all in the same boat when it comes to facing our demons
