    117: Nick Compton: "Replacing something like cricket is certainly not easy"

    117: Nick Compton: "Replacing something like cricket is certainly not easy"

    Many sportsmen struggle post-retirement and Nick Compton is searching for his identity post cricket. He loves to travel and has spent the last few weeks in Africa, where he has also caught up with family. He loves photography and anyone following his Instagram knows he is pretty handy with a camera. And he has done some media work too. 
    Here he chats with the Cricket Badger, James Buttler, about life after cricket and his struggles with mental health since the age of 13. He speaks refreshingly candidly about putting life's jigsaw pieces together.

    116: Life without sport and how we cope, with psychologist Simon Hartley

    116: Life without sport and how we cope, with psychologist Simon Hartley

    With no sport to watch we welcome psychologist Simon Hartley to the Cricket Badger Podcast. The founder of Be World Class (https://be-world-class.com/) chats to James Buttler about what we do with ourselves.
    The players have prepared for competitions and now have no idea when they will get to play cricket again. For those of us in the media, the work has disappeared overnight. And sports fans everywhere are already missing their fix of live action. How do we all cope with no sport to watch?

    Help!! Advertisers / sponsors needed on Cricket Badger Podcast. GREAT RATES!

    Hi everyone
    With the sporting world grinding to a halt, the Cricket Badger Podcast continues with great guests, discussions and two per week during the coronavirus postponements and cancellations of sporting events.
    James Buttler, the Badger, currently has a lot of time on his hands with live sport and the potential to commentate, broadcast and write about it gone overnight. He also needs an income!
    The Cricket Badger Podcast reaches thousands of cricket fans every week and would provide a great opportunity to get in front of those listeners. With live sport gone, podcasts are expected to grown in popularity as people crave entertainment. GREAT RATES AVAILABLE.
    Call James on 07799964812 or email cricketbadger@hotmail.com for a discussion and more information.
    The Cricket Badger Podcast could really use your help and we will return the compliment by giving you prominence on the Podcast, website (https://cricketbadgerpod.com/) and social media.
    Thanks!!

    115: Cricket and the Coronavirus - is sport doing the right thing? With Nakul Pande

    What a few days it has been for humankind and sport. We've seen fixtures, tournaments, Test series and sport thrown on the postponed and cancelled lists as the world buckles down to take on COVID-19.
    The Badger, James Buttler, is joined on this week's Cricket Badger Podcast by journalist and broadcaster Nakul Pande to assess the impact of the virus on cricket and the future of the sport. Are the right measures being taken? When will we see cricket played again?
    There is a lot to discuss! But sports commentators have plenty of free time to do just that in these troubled times.
    Thank you very much for listening and supporting the podcast!
