Between Two Beers Podcast

Good questions. Great guests. Few beers... Steve and Seamus like asking good questions. And they love good answers. After over 20 years of friendship, they bought a microphone and started a podcast, allowing them to sit with, and learn from, the most interesting people they can access. From Kiwi legend Marc Ellis, to media personalities Jeremy Wells and Paddy Gower, Rugby coach extraordinaire Wayne Smith, sexologist Morgan Penn, and Olympian Dame Lisa Carrington... Between Two Beers has produced countless hours of incredible stories, career highs, lows and moments of raw vulnerability. And it’s only the beginning. iHeartRadio NZ Podcast Network

On this episode of Between two Beers we’re rewinding the clock back to February of 2023 when we sat down with Dame Lisa Carrington.

Lisa is New Zealand’s most successful Olympian of all time with five Olympic gold medals in the sprint Kayak, one bronze and 12 World Championship titles. 

For over a de...

William Pike is one of our low-key legends who is a world-class story teller, with an exceptional story to tell.

In 2007 he was guiding a friend to the summit of Ruapehu when the mountain erupted. As a layer of rocks, water and mud rained down on his Dome shelter, he was crushed and critically injured.

When he next woke up in hospital, his leg was gone. Doctors called William’s survival a miracle, but his crushed right leg had to...

Dave Wood is best known as being Israel Adesanya’s breathing and mindset coach – and was one of our favourite, and most popular, guests in 2023.

He runs a two-day Calm Under Pressure workshop in Piha and the course – and his work has a strong connection to the show.

Steve went on it last year, it’s where he was inspired by Jemarl Paerata’s story and we had him on the show as a guest – and this month Seamus attended it.

Awen Guttenbeil was suggested to us 18 months ago as a guest with ‘serious depth’.

From that toehold he climbed the corporate ladder before becoming president for Adidas North America w...
