5 years ago I had the pleasure of kickin’ it with L-FRESH The LION on my couch in West Melbourne, chewing the fat on Punjab, Sikh culture, meditation, music and all the simple things in life. 5 years and 221 episodes later, it brings a broad  smile to my face that L was my 9th ever Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast guest, that he’s part of my journey and I his.

And man L-FRESH has been BUSY!!! From festival appearances all over Australia, L-FRESH The LION addressed the United Nations Headquarters in New York in late 2018 and shared a stage in London with the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate, Pakistani human rights and female education activist Malala Yousafzai. 

He was also selected as an ambassador for YouTube’s Creators For Change global initiative, with his resulting video RACI$T / OUR WORLD premiering at the Tribeca TV festival in New York and accumulating close to half a million views. 

Step inside our world as we chat about the beauty of Goa (India), where he shot the music video for his latest single, ‘Born To Stand Out’, how he stays refreshed and hungry at a time where he’s never been busier, our shared love for NBA, ‘Culture Strong’ x 500K+ views and so much more.

Breaking ground and exceeding expectations is a recurring theme of this South West Sydney artist, having performed alongside hip hop icons such as Nas, Talib Kweli, Chali 2NA and Dead Prez, and even the legendary Sir Elton John, it’s wonderfully refreshing that  L-FRESH The LION remains so humble, thoughtful and community-focused.  I doff my hat to you, sir.

Let’s get into the show!

Ash Hazell – Brews, Biochemistry & Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co.

Craft Beer podcast: Ash Hazell – Brews, Biochemistry & Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #180 Ash Hazell (Head of Brewing – Colonial Brewing Co)

Meet Ash Hazell! This rad dude, close friend of mine and wonderful soul is the Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co!

Yep, Ash Hazell oversees brewing at both Colonial Brewing Co breweries in Port Melbourne on the east coast of Australia and Margaret River in the west.

2 weeks back I jetted down to Melbourne-town for my yearly MRI brain scan and surgeon’s appointment, so last minute I dropped Ash a line and locked in an afternoon of drinking beers, brewery tour and podcasting with this legend!

Like many of the world’s best brewers, Ash fell in love with home-brewing beer from his very first taste of a mate’s home-brew at 16. Fiercely determined to then make this thing his life, completing chemistry degree with units of biochemistry and microbiology, Ash Hazell began his journey into professional brewing at one of Australia’s first craft beer breweries, Little Creatures Brewing Co, then founded Barrow Boys Brewing and was eventually head-hunted to take the reins at Colonial Brewing Co.

We cover off on Ash Hazell’s earliest ever beer memory, what inspired him to become a brewer in the first place, the Colonial Brewing Co Crosby Stills & Mash Gin Infused IIPA, South West Sour and their latest top secret brew, the delectable chocolate, honey and rum infused Violent Rumble.

And then of course, we had a few more beers… 😁🍻✨

Yum, Yum, Yum… Super, super podcast chats… Let’s get into it!

Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet catch-up with ex NBA Dallas Mavericks baller Chris Anstey.

PODCAST – #68 Chris Anstey (NBA & Australian Olympic basketballer)..

You never know who’s watching. Be ready.
 
Here I sit. 10km above the earth, USA-bound on a jet-plane, 12 hours from touch down at Dallas Forth Worth International editing this week’s podcast with goal driven, ex NBA Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls & Australian Olympic basketballer, Chris Anstey.
 
7ft tall and a world of experience. Chris Anstey didn’t start playing basketball until he was aged 17 and then in his first match filling in on his brother’s team, scored 52 points in one game not knowing that there were 2 scouts in the crowd. And the rest is history…
 
Despite all of the accolades and championships that he’s won as a baller, what some people won’t know about Chris Anstey is that prior to basketball, his first love in sport was tennis – a promising young Australian tennis player, Chris peaked as the #2 ranked junior in Australia of his age-group at aged 15, played with The Scud AKA Mark Philippoussis and was doubles partners with champion AFL footballer Dustin Fletcher.
 

Blessed to be welcomed into Chris’ home through a mutual friend of ours, Chris and I spend the hour talking about his open, honest & pragmatic transition from tennis to basketball, what it means to represent Australia at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, leadership, understanding your team and each individual’s style of learning so that you can help them raise the bar for their own skill-set and aspirations, beating Michael Jordan & the Chicago Bulls and much, much more.

Let’s get into it!
