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

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

And he did not disappoint.

In fact, we loved this ep so much we’re re-releasing it this week for all those who may have missed it a year ago.

You may know Awen as one of New Zealand’s greatest rugby league players, with 170 caps for the Warriors over a professional career that spanned 15 years. What you might not know, is that in the first f...

This ep is really special. There's just so much goodness in here.

On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Lauren Rae.

I don't say this lightly, but this is one of the most powerful eps we've done.

Lauren is one of our Low Key Legends, who's currently in the fight of her life against melanoma.

After going to the Commonwealth Games as a weightlifter, Lauren was given a terminal cancer diagnosis for a rare non-sun related melanoma which contained a gene called BRAF v600e.

Strap in, because this one’s an epic. 
 
Zion Armstrong's story starts in West Auckland and involves running away from the police so fast that he started an athletics career that took him to the Commonwealth Games. At the same time, he was selling sport shoes – and at the age of 24 was head of footwear at adidas NZ. 
 
From that toehold he climbed the corporate ladder before becoming president for Adidas North America w...

Dave Letele is perhaps best known as a former professional boxer 'Brown Buttabean’, but his story is so much larger than that.  

It's been filled with highs and lows, from early sporting success to the failure of his supermarket business in Australia where he lost everything, including his family, and returned to New Zealand with only the clothes on his back, weighing in at over 200 kgs.
