An extension of the thiswarriorslife.com website, This Warriors Life's podcast features Will Evans and Brad Larking breaking down the NZ Warriors' progress in the NRL each week.
This Warriors Life Podcast 2021: Ep 34 - At the leaner with Fonzie
It's an end-of-season blowout with Will and Brad getting together with Fonzie over a few froths. They talk Brown, best 17 for 2022, Ash Taylor, CHT and a whole bunch of random, tangential garbage. Hopefully a bit of lockdown relief for the Auckland- and NSW-based listeners out there.
This Warriors Life Podcast 2021: Ep 33 - Mediocrity as an Act of Resistance
It's too disjointed to call it a season review, but Will and Brad give their assessment of the weak finish to 2021 on the Gold Coast, the overblown discipline furore and a wretched season overall. Recruitment chat, Will's deep dive into why Brown has a minimal chance of proving a good hire, Brad's ever-involving odyssey of a lamb-owner, Warriors youngsters that got away (courtesy of Nick Phillips and Callum Newson-Brown), support for former greats to sound off publicly (however ill-conceived or negative), Player of the Year chat, the Chancer NRL Finals Weekender game and a quick preview of the Week 1 games.
This Warriors Life Podcast 2021: Ep 32 - End of the Line
Last Friday's finals-hopes-ending loss still stinging like the first sunburn of summer, Will and Brad draft in a special guest to boost the enthusiasm factor - and Sammy St. G sparkles on debut like Patty Herbert or Walshy at AAMI Park on Anzac Day. The loss to the Raiders reviewed, Sunday's clash with the Titans previewed, and a whole bunch of 2021 season-reviewy, 2022-forecasty, archetypal-Warriors-fan-lament jibber jabber in between.
This Warriors Life Podcast 2021: Ep 31 - Alive and Kicking
The boys convene on Friday morning for a rare GAMEDAY podcast, revelling in the Warriors still being a mathematical finals hope ahead of tonight's showdown with the Raiders. Meanwhile, Brad gets a pet lamb and wonders aloud if he could bring himself to eat it, before detailing his battles with a knotted extension lead.

This Warriors Life Podcast 2021: Ep 30 - We're Still Standing
Coming to you from Level 4, Will and Brad are already showing signs of lockdown fatigue...could be the day drinking. But they're pumped the Warriors are still alive in the finals race, while the rambling, tangent-heavy league chat is complemented by Larking asking another couple of life's great questions: where is the thermometer for the outside temp on your car? And who is the 'feels like' temp person on the weather?
This Warriors Life Podcast 2021: Ep 29 - Stairway to Evans
They're back after a few weeks in the casualty ward, wrapping up the Warriors' first back-to-back wins of the season as the little finals flame just keeps flickering. The Twitter mailbag gets a run, Will bemoans the lack of quality rugby league Evanses and Brad's got issues with Cooper Cronk and Maggi 2-minute Noodles' packaging.
