Jay-Jay Feeney (NZ Queen of music radio)
Jay-Jay Feeney is the undisputed queen of music radio in New Zealand. She started the radio station The Edge and grew it into the massive brand that it remains to this day. She currently hosts one of New Zealand’s most listened to afternoon shows on the station, More FM.She is the author of two books and has won too many NZ radio awards to count!.This is a strange episode...jeust because of the intensely personal nature of it. I can’t imagine I will ever record a podcast that is as raw, emotive, and vulnerable as this one is. The reason being- the personal relationship.JJ and I got married in 2004. We separated about 5 years ago but remain very, very close. Because of this relationship, we know everything about one another and had the ability to touch upon some very serious stuff. Because of that a trigger warning is needed- this podcast episode discusses family violence and sexual abuse, infertility and IVF, depression, and suicide.If you listen to this and need some professional help in New Zealand, you can call or text 1737 free of charge to talk to a trained counsellor.This podcast also includes a lot of light moments too as we zoom in on some of JJs many career highlights.

Kelsey Waghorn (Whakaari White Island eruption survivor)
Kelsey Waghorn was a Whakaari White Island tour guide in December 2019 when it erupted. This is a powerful and raw conversation with Kelsey. And it is a tough listen in parts, made slightly easier thanks to Kelsey's ability to find the humor and light in the darkest situations. We talk about Kelsey and her life before, during and after the eruption, the resilience and courage it takes to navigate life after such a harrowing experience.Through her journey of healing, both physically and mentally, Kelsey opens up about her struggles with PTSD and how she learned to be kinder to herself.Her story serves as a stark reminder that even in the darkest of times, laughter and hope can help us heal and move forward.I loved Kelsey's company so much. She left me feeling inspired, moved and motivated. She doesn’t do much stuff like this so I can’t thank her enough.Thanks to Radix Nutrition for sponsoring this episode. They are (currently) a little kiwi company doing big things. Check them out for yourself right here:https://radixnutrition.co.nz/.Also, big thanks to the spectacular QT hotel in Auckland for looking after Kelsey while she was in Auckland.https://www.qthotels.com/auckland/ Hosted on Acast.

Simon Cochrane ("Ultraman" world record holder)
Simon Cochrane:A week before this podcast conversation took place, Simon Cochrane travelled from his home in Hamilton NZ to take part in the "Ultraman" event in Noosa as a relative unknown in this event. After 3 days of intense and brutal racing he not only won the event, he also SMASHED the world record.The Ultraman event is a crazy few days of racing. It was created in 1983 by some mad bastards who, I'm assuming, decided the Ironman distance was too easy LOL. This is what an Ultraman weekend looks like:Day 1: 10km ocean swim and a 145km bike ride.Day 2: 276-km bike ride.Day 3: 84-km run (double marathon).This is definitely an episode for the running and multi-sport nerds. But there are takeaways in this conversation for everyone. Including time management and how to get more out of yourself every day, and how you can change your situation if you aren’t happy with it and the importance of enjoying everything you do- and how that’s a mindset you can choose. As Simon says with his endurance events: “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.”Thanks very much to my pals at Radix Nutrition for sponsoring this episode:https://radixnutrition.co.nz/ Hosted on Acast.

Hadyn Jones is an ultramarathon runner (that’s one of the caps he wears). He is also a well-known current affairs TV host. You may recognize the face or voice from Fair Go, Seven Sharp, the good sorts segment at the end of the news on Sunday night (a really cool feature he has done for years).He is also a dad and a husband. All roles that he juggles successfully. His secret includes getting his long runs done when the kids are in bed!We discussed his running journey, his career including his early years working with Sir Paul Holmes and the decision to relocate and work from Taranaki. We talk about his home life, his recollections from losing his dad at the age of 5 and much more.

Leigh Hart (NZ TV royalty- his most raw & vulnerable interview ever)
If you say you don't know who Leigh Hart is, I'd probably raise an eye brow.He has been part of the New Zealand comedy and TV landscape for two decades now.He is also the face of Hellers sausages, the creator of Wakachangi beer and, more recently, the insanely good Snackachangi chips THE best Salt n Vinegar chips in the world).BUT whether you know him or not, I think you’ll be a fan of Leigh after this. It’s a fascinating insight into the mind of a creative genius.We get real deep and talk about his childhood which included a whole year without seeing his parents.His entire TV career and which of his old work he regrets now, and how the famous snackachngi chips came about.Lee also reflects on his marriage breakup, the resilience needed to get through it, and how he has become more emotionally vulnerable with age. This was my favourite part of the conversation. His honestly and vulnerability was profound. Thanks to my friends at Radix Nutrition for sponsoring this episode. I am a daily user of their protein powder. Start every day with a shake for breakfast. Their banana flavor is incredible. They are much more than amazing and delicious protein powder though.
