    Barkly Street Happy Hour | Shane Warne

    Bob and Bont are enjoying 'The Pod' life, and with life slowing down in preparation for the weekend they've gone for a little bit extra and recorded a bonus, 'Happy Hour' edition of 'The Barkly Street' podcast.

    The football banter has been parked, as they take a lateral step away from the football bubble and explore other topics and bring in some special guests for the ride.

    To take the new ball, they aimed for the stars with their first guest, with Australian sporting icon Shane Warne joining the duo for a 'Happy Hour' drink.

    With the 'king of spin' along for the ride, the boys cover a wide range of topics including:

    • How Shane Warne and Bont first met
    • Life in isolation for the 'King of Spin,' including 36 holes of golf each day without leaving home
    • 'The Test' on Amazon Prime and Warne's take on opening up the inner-sanctum of sport to the fans
    • Personalities in sport, and the importance of being authentic, and avoiding being quick to judge
    • The athlete's mindset, and the two minutes before you take the field, and preparation for performance
    • Could Warnie have turned U/19s games at St Kilda into a league career?
    • Life as a sports fan - how Warnie watches a game and who he enjoys watching
    • How Warnie is doing his bit to help hospitals contend with COVID-19
