Podcast with Chris Lawrence

  • Hey guys,

    I did a podcast with Chris Lawrence which was released today. Unfortunately Chris as you know was injured last week and we all wish him a speedy recovery. The podcast was recorded 3 weeks ago and given all the negative headlines by some players its refreshing to see someone like Chris doing great things and bringing a positive story to the table.

  • Sounds great, will have to give it a listen when I have time.

    Has always been a great clubman, regardless of some of the opinions on this forum.

  • Yeah its very hard to find a one club man with over 200 games just for the one club.

    Enjoy the podcast

  • Thanks for the interview Tristan. You cover a lot of interesting territory.

    It’s interesting that the two WT players you have interviewed (Galloway and Rowdy) both spoke of how much they admired Gareth Ellis. He was a real role model (as is Rowdy).

    Thanks for your efforts.

  • Cheers . The Keithy one was great. The Wayne Pearce one even better. I got a lot of the Wayne Pearce one. I’ve started to be more doing a few of his daily routines to clear my mind before starting a days work. Ive had a stressful time at work the last couple of weeks and this has got me through it. Much appreciated.

    Iooking forward to the Chris Lawrence one.

  • The TK interviews are up there with the best podcasts I’ve listened to. Thanks TK.

  • Best sports podcasts I’ve listened to - The Howie Games. Brilliant insightful interviewing technique. Last weeks with Ben Graham was amazing. Shane Warne was top shelf as well. Worth a listen

  • Thanks for your message mate. I’m glad juniors podcast has helped you I’ve sent your message to him too. Getting your morning routine in place is a huge one for me too.

    Enjoy the podcasts and season ahead mate

  • Yeah I agree mate, Howie is the king really inspires me to get mine better also. His great especially with the cricket and AFL guys

  • Thanks @tristan.k_nell great interview
    Will have a listen to some others too and share them with other fans.

  • I listened to your podcast with Lawrence - really good I thought. First one of yours I’ve listened to but will listen to more (I do alot of long distance driving 😀)

  • Hey guys,

    I’ve had Tim Simona’s people reach out to me about sitting down for a yarn with Tim.

    I know there is a mixed feeling about Tim from you Tigers fans.

    What would be your interest in hearing from Tim about everything?


  • Top work! Great listen that, Rowdy is a ledge.

    I’d be super interested in hearing the Simona story.

  • Cheers mate glad you enjoyed it and for the feedback also

  • @tristan.k_nell:

    What would be your interest in hearing from Tim about everything?

    Look, it probably wouldn’t change my dim opinion of him, but it’s always interesting to hear.
