Wagons. Songs from the Aftermath. Psychedelic, space cowboy Henry Wagons and his 6-piece band of misfit entertainers are BACK with a dark, sweaty, bludgeoning country rock LP.

3.5 years ago Henry and I shared a couple of cheeky India Pale Ale craft beers in a Holiday Inn Hotel in Hermosa Beach, California, and together we recorded 2 hours of one of my favourite podcast episodes ever.

Our second time around, we wax lyrical on overseas adventures, Vietnam Vespa iPhone thievesScrabble dates versus Netflix & Chill, the evolution from writing solo to collaboration in the deepest form from the stages of embryo, his love of Nashville, 5-year old daughter Casper’s 3RRR artist debut and much, much more.

Podcasting and hanging out with Henry Wagons is an absolute joy! Get it in your ears!

Small Business Podcast: Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint founder, Tony Gosden.

Posted on Updated on

Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint founder, Tony Gosden, joins Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! in Sydney.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #130 Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint founder (Tony Gosden). 

I moved to Bondi Beach late last year after falling in love with the Sydney Eastern Suburbs beach lifestyle and I made a decision to stay.

One of the attractions of Bondi Beach for me is not only that I now live 5 minutes walk from Bondi Beach, with spectacular coastal walks and lunchtime swims part of my regular routine, but I have become friends with and have access to a wealth of like-minded, ambitious, progressive and creative individuals that work and reside in this beautiful suburb of Sydney.

So many in this local global beachside community possess a mentality that encompasses an understanding that 9-5 is a primitive way to exist and there is another way to achieve success, whilst living life to the fullest! (as we speak I am sitting here at the home office in my board shorts having started my working week at midday on a Monday).

One of those inspiring peeps in my life is the human embodiment of the word ‘community’ and the creator/owner of Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint, Tony Gosden. Hailing from a music industry background as a promoter and band manager, Tony created Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint as a salute to the rock’n’roll lifestyle, with a diverse mix of platinum records, graffiti/local art, march and books hanging on the walls of this Glenayr Avenue restaurant, Young Henrys beer on tap, a mouth-watering menu of burgers named after indie Australian bands and awesome tunes cranked all day while you eat, drink and be merry.

In today’s show, we chat about founding your own business and the values that you bring to your business as an individual, Tony’s background in the music industry and the stories behind the array of band-inspired burgers including the Classic Cog, Trippin’ Seahorse (my fave), Lost Valentino, Just a Jezabel and Johnny Collide, why Tony moved to Bondi 20 years ago and never left, his sense of community and partnering with local Sydney businesses like Young Henrys and Field To Fork to ensure we can all thrive and grow together and much, much more.

And if this alone isn’t enough to entice you to get inside the mind of this successful Aussie businessman and to download this chat, then try this on for size… Bondi Tony’s Burger Joint is the most ordered food in Australia on app/website Deliveroo! Get it in your mouth and get it in your ears!

Let’s get into it!

‘Problematic’. Tom Ballard Tackling Political Correctness and the big issues at Sydney Comedy Festival 2017!

Posted on Updated on

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST – #129 Tom Ballard (comedian, podcaster & writer). 

Happiness!

Anyone who listens to Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! on Bondi Beach Radio and the iTunes podcast every week, will know that I am a massive fan and believer in chasing your dreams in the pursuit of happiness. 

This week I am excited to have award-winning Australian comedian, podcaster & writer, Tom Ballard on Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! to promote his 2017 stand-up show Tom Ballard – ‘Problematic’, LIVE at Giant Dwarf this Thursday 4th – Sunday 7th May as part of Sydney Comedy Festival.

Over the past 2 years since our last recording together, Tom’s stand-up comedy career has been on a sharp rise to the top, enjoying nominations for Best Show at both Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016, his American television debut on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival, his political podcast Like I’m A Six-Year-Old has just hit 100 episodes and continues to grow from strength to strength and at the end of 2016 he appeared in SBS’s ground-breaking series First Contact, a journey of discovery into Aboriginal Australia.

One of the joys that I have discovered that comes as a result of surrounding yourself with like-minded people also pursuing their own ambition and success, is that invariably you get to watch your friends rise to the challenge, share their journeys and celebrate your collective wins along the way.

Tom Ballard was certainly already well on his way to this success we first met 6 years ago, whilst launching triple j unearthed as a radio station back in 2011, but to then watch him have the courage to leave his role has co-host of the Tom & Alex morning show on triple j, take a leap of faith to achieve his dream of being a successful stand-up comedian and see where he’s at now just makes me so happy!

“Being your own master of your life and your passions, it’s a very powerful and important thing to do and if you have a chance to take it then grab it with both hands.” – Tom Ballard.

Never a truer word spoken, my man. Let’s get into the show!
