    167: Harsha Bhogle (Part A)

    167: Harsha Bhogle (Part A)

    He is the voice of cricket. But, he is so much more. The beauty about this world wide sensation, is that he is kind, thoughtful and funny. 

    From humble beginnings, this shy and unconfident Indian student, has turned into a global icon. He has travelled the world writing and commentating cricket, with stories, relationships and memories to last a life time. He has known Sachin Tendulkar since he was 14-years-old, and commentated the highly emotional lap of honour in his final test match. He had ups and downs with Shane Warne before becoming a colleague and a friend. He has made countless other cricket friends and memories along the way. 

    His insights into the craft of commentary and the story about how he got to where he is today, is as good as it gets.

    167: Harsha Bhogle (Player Profile)

    The voice of cricket trades in the microphone for the whites as he sets down his very own Player Profile.

    He has been in three Bollywood movies playing HIMSELF and has a podcast recommendation, with him in it!

    His ideal holiday destination is in Australia, and he has the perfect technique to get a selfie with a quokka. 

    And, Harsha's 8 million+ Twitter followers are not going to believe his answer when it comes to pineapple on pizza!

Bruce McAvaney

Hey Howie

I re-listened to your Bruce interview. He is the best broadcaster in the last 50 years.

The Howie asking questions of episode thirty something isn’t near as good as the latest episodes.

Can you do Brice again and dive in as deep into as you now do.

He’s the best there ever was, lets hear with Howie 2021 asking questions.

Background noise is distracting

Sounds like he’s cleaning the kitchen and making sandwiches. Hearing the wife and dog is odd. Super distracting from otherwise awesome content.

Best thing I’ve listened to since Clarke’s took two wickets in the last over at the school

I think it’s brilliant. Love the stories have listened to most twice. Just be careful with the jarrod Lyle episode. Found myself driving along the i80 in California balling my eyes out. Good stuff howie.
