    E54 - Why we were obsessed with The Last Dance

    E54 - Why we were obsessed with The Last Dance

    In the absence of live sport, documentary series The Last Dance has gone a long way to scratching that itch for us and we're still hooked on Michael Jordan, over 20 years after he retired.

    We tried our best not to talk about the episodes amongst ourselves...UNTIL now. In this episode, we touch on:

    - MJ’s leadership; was he too harsh on his teammates? Was his greatness tarnished by the way he treated people?
    - The influence of Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman
    - Did MJ have a problem with losing? He always wanted to ‘destroy’ those who would make negative comments about him.
    - His gambling
    - The 3 peat and a lot more

    E51 - COVID-19 Lockdown: What have I learnt about myself?

    E51 - COVID-19 Lockdown: What have I learnt about myself?

    With these unprecedented times, we’ve all had a lot more time on our hands - to be either more productive by learning new skills, cleaning, tidying, DIY or tasks you’ve been putting off due to ‘lack of time’. Alternatively, we could have squandered this time by binging on Netflix day in, day out.

    In this weeks episode, we discuss among ourselves:

    • What have we learnt about ourselves during this time?
    • Are we finding we enjoy the time alone/with family or we miss the social aspect?
    • What’s the one thing we’ve noticed we’re missing the most?
    • What have we been able to do that we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to (due to lack of time)?
    • What new habits have we formed; good or bad?
    • Have we found ourselves connecting with more friends/family and appreciate technology i.e. FaceTime, WhatsApp calls etc?
