    Episode 101: Martin Potter (Prelude - The Impact of Coronavirus)

    #TheHowieGames | Martin Potter is the 1989 World Surfing Champion, but you don't need to have any interest in surfing to take something from this episode.

    "Pottz" tells some wild tales in this chat…from growing up in South Africa in the apartheid era to joining a group of tough, competitive, aggressive surfers on tour as a 15 year old!

    He discusses family relationships, the wave that defined his life, in-competition biffo, and more recently a life in the commentary box, including being on air when Mick Fanning was attacked by a shark at Jeffreys Bay.

    But the real gist of what Martin is all about, what defines him still today, is his attitude towards life and living. Martin has an unwavering determination to forge his own path, no matter the resistance. Pottz has the courage to be an outlier.

    Episode 100: Adam Scott (Part A)

    Episode 100: Adam Scott (Part A)

    THE TON. WOOHOO! 

    #TheHowieGames | Adam Scott has a brilliant story. A story that will forever be etched in Australian sporting history and Adam tells it in this episode in such a relaxed, entertaining, reflective and funny manner. 

    Adam is a pretty private person and I hadn’t heard a lot of these stories. 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)

    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 ❤️

Unreal podcast in general but felt compelled to review after Adam Scott edition. Adam so open and down-to-earth.
Quality listening, Howie!
