    IZZY WHITLEY:
    This mate of mine is an absolute force of nature and has a story that will hopefully motivate you to get more out of your own life.
    At 21 Izzy he started his own business with $500. He is now 29 and owns two businesses that are worth millions. And he is just getting started.
    The secret to his success? Hard work and a relentless drive to be better. 
    In this chat we get to the bottom on where his work ethic, drive and ambition stems from.
    I hope this chat inspires you to get a little more out of your own life. 
    Thanks to the sponsors of this episode. Check them out. They are both companies that are killing it in their respective fields (nutrition and Kiwi-Saver provider):

    MARK RICHARDSON:
    Just before we pad up and get to the crease, thanks to my sponsors at Generate and Radix.
    Generate is my personal KiwiSaver scheme, and I’d love it if you would consider making it yours too.  
    I recently moved over to Generates Kiwi saver scheme after meeting up with one of their awesome advisors. And the bottom line is, if I’d done this sooner, my KiwiSaver savings would probably be worth more than they are now.
    If you want to make sure you’re making the most of your Kiwisaver account, talk to an adviser now. Head to:
    https://www.generatewealth.co.nz/
    A copy of their product disclosure statement can be found there too. The issuer of the scheme is Generate Investment Management Limited and, of course, past performance does not guarantee future returns.
    This episode is also sponsored by Radix, the official nutrition sponsors of Simone Maier who just won her 5th Coast to Coast title.
    High performance athletes, like Simone, have been fans of Radix for years, now regular folks like you and I can improve our own lives by using Radix products. The protein powder is incredible. And the freeze dried just-add-water meals are impossibly good- you really do need to try them for yourself.

    Righto, onto the episode! So much coming up in this episode with Mark.
    We discuss his brand new career transition to a financial advisor at Forsyth Barr, becoming unemployed when Today FM shut down and the toll it took on his mental health, reflections on his time as one of the world’s best cricketers- including his complex relationship with the late Shane Warne, becoming public enemy #1 for a week after he asked the Prime Minister a controversial question on TV, accidentally outing Ryan Bridge on the AM Show and much much more.
    I really hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.
    Thanks, Dom

    Mere Baker - Coaching Ruby Tui, Growth of Women's Rugby, NZ Drinking Culture & more!

    MERE BAKER
    You may not know the name. But please don’t let that put you off- you are about to be introduced to a hilarious, inspiring, infectious and talented wahine who has one hell of a story.
    Mere has by her own admission done a lot of dumb shit…but she has also done a lot of work to become the woman she is today and it’s a privilege to share her story.
    Mere is a former sports star. She won the world cup with the Kiwi ferns in 2003 and was an Aotearoa Sevens international. 
    These days she dabbles in TV commentary. Before that she coached rugby all over the world and had such an impact on a young Ruby Tui that a whole chapter of Rubys book was centered around her coaching style- “abrupt” is the word Ruby uses to describe her!
    This is the Mere Baker story- warts n all.
    Thanks to the sponsors of this episode, Radix and Generate.
    Radix is the baby of a previous podcast guest, Mike Rudling. He started this company with the very earnest goal of making you and I live longer and more quality lives by improving our diets. His episode is well worth checking out. As are the products Mike and his team are making:

    Steve Williams on Tiger Woods' Crazy Life, How He Got Fired, Did He Ruin His Legacy?

    Steve Williams on Tiger Woods' Crazy Life, How He Got Fired, Did He Ruin His Legacy?

    Steve Williams- the worlds greatest golf caddy of all time!
    This was such an honor. Steve is by design a pretty reclusive guy. This is the first long form podcast about his life that he has ever done so it’s a true honor he agreed to do it.
    As you would expect, there is a lot of Tiger Wood chat ahead- they were, after all, best friends and had an incredible working relationship for 12 very successful years. Tiger has won a total of 15 majors…and Steve was his caddy for 13 of them.
    We talk about Tigers mindset, the dynamics of their relationship, how Steve coped with the backlash from Tigers well publicized indiscretions, the perks, and bonuses from being the caddy of the world’s best golfer and so much more. But this is not Tigers story- this is the Steve Williams story and I’m so excited to give you a peak into the mind of this reluctant hero who for a period in the early 2000s was New Zealand’s highest paid sportsperson….and then gave a lot of it away to Starship hospital.
    Big thanks to my sponsors who make these weekly conversations possible. Generate and Radix.

    Simone Maier - Multi-Sport World Champ on Racing with Richie McCaw, Sexual Abuse & Mental Health

    Simone Maier - Multi-Sport World Champ on Racing with Richie McCaw, Sexual Abuse & Mental Health

    Simone Maier- most of you probably won’t know the name, but you are in for a treat! Simone is, plain and simply a multisport savage. She has won the Coast to Coast four times, after moving to NZ from Germany at 20 unable to speak any English. 
    She was also teammates in a Godzone event with Richie McCaw and was a contestant on the reality TV show “Tracked.”
    But what makes Simone's story is the adversity. Before she came here and experienced the highest or highs, she had to endure very low lows growing up, events which culminated in Simone spending a full year in rehab for an eating disorder and self-harm. 
    Because of all the themes we discuss, I’ve included a list of resources and numbers available to call in NZ if you feel the need to talk to a professional (You’ll find these at the bottom of this page). 
    This episode was made entirely possible by the team at Radix. Radix sponsor Simone and took care of all her travel arrangements for this chat. We both gush about how much we love Radix products in this chat. Simone is one of the elite communities that have known about Radix stuff for years. High performance sports people have been using the stuff for years. Its only now that us regular people are learning about this incredible Kiwi creation from Hamilton.
    Protein powders, smoothie recovery powders and the best freeze-dried meals in the world.

    Andrew Webster - Coaching The Warriors to Success, Shaun Johnson, Up The Wahs Craze, and more!

    Andrew Webster, or “Webby” as he is known to his players had a phenomenal season in 2023 coaching the NZ Warriors to their first NRL semifinal in years. And winning the hearts of the entire nation in the process.

    We chat about the strategies used to build a winning team spirit, including a thing called “extreme ownership.” How he balances his full-noise job and family life with a newborn son, the up the wahs movement, the bunker ref, the revival of Shaun Johnson, his viral winning speech for NRL coach of the year and so much more.
    This episode offers a look into the mind of a rugby league genius who is shaping the game.
    Before we crack into it, massive thanks to the teams at Radix and Generate for making this episode happen.

Just started listening to Dom and absolutely love his podcast. He has a really great interview style which is casual but still slightly probing, empathetic and genuinely interested.
Martin Henderson was a great listen.
