Another bloody podcast??

We know we know haha. But this one is a little different.

Our podcast
'A Whole New Ballgame'

spawned from our frustration and concern over the number of negative stories about athletes who had major struggles during their transition out of professional sport.
We get it, many do it tough and there IS a story there, BUT....

We felt it important to current day athletes, associations, clubs and fans that we highlight some of the positive stories from some of your favourite sporting stars.

We interview some of our greatest ever retired athletes who have made a successful transition into post sport life.
We discuss their sporting career, the challenges they faced along the way, what inspired their career path and how the skills and attributes honed in the sporting arena have helped influence their current success.

It's not all glitz and glam or shits and giggles, but nor will you find any hard luck stories here. It's all positive and designed to entertain, inspire and educate fans and current day athletes.

HUGE thanks to all our guests for being so open, honest, and concerned about the transition space and what it means to the mental health and wellbeing of today's stars as they look to the future outside their game.
