And we also discuss Instagram's newest quirk as well as talk heaps more crap. Thanks to all & stay stoked aye!
Yeeeeow, Stoked episode 66 is live and we are shot, mentally, emotionally and physically after watching one of the greatest games of ODI cricket the world has ever seen. Kane Williamson and his troops executed nothing short of a miracle when they dispatched India in the Cricket World Cup semi final to again advance to the big dance. It was a game that affected many Kiwis around the country so we thought we'd do a deep dive into wha... Read more

Yeah, we know - massive call with the headline, but hey, we're jazzed! Or more specifically, Mitch is jazzed - in today's episode anyway. Yep, that's right - no Louis. Stoked Podcast, the Mitch edition. A couple of disclaimers, he produced this himself so it could be a little dusty, and/or rough around the edges (pressed all the buttons himself even! Plus, all of today's content is hypothetical and speculative as nothing has been c... Read more
Okay Okay Okay. You know we like surfing and we know you like hearing about surfing so this week we have an absolute gem of a guest for you. 7x National Surfing Champion Billy Stairmand came into studio to discuss his sensational form on the World Surf League Qualifying Series where he finds himself in a very good position heading into the back half of the year. He spoke about his mindset, life out of the water and his equipment as... Read more

Costing 25 million dollars, the gondola is set to be functional by late June, right on time for the snow and you shredders. We found out from Jono how the massive pr... Read more
Wow, do we have a podcast for you. This week we have employed the great mind of Chris Rattue to offer his take about where the Warriors this season and in general. A team loved by so many but can never seem to find consistent success, we ask Rats what he thinks it would take to find a winning formula as a New Zealand NRL side. Plus a few takes on the PGA Championship, our Kiwi surfers ripping and obviously Game Of Thrones. Get aro... Read more

(11.00) Then we catch up with all round great Kiwi Louis Sammons to fi... Read more

Strap yourselves in because this podcast has it all. By chance, a bunch of our pet topics have collided this week meaning we have had to drop one big ol' pod. Don't worry - we'll lend you some time codes if you want to pick and chose.. First up we speak to one GOAT about another. Sky Racing's Greg Radley stops in to pay respects to maybe the greatest racehorse ever, Winx. She races for the very last time this Saturday and we are em... Read more
Weeeeeew, The return of the World Surf League's Championship Tour means one thing. The return of one of our most esteemed and favourite guests. Ian 'Ratso' Buchanan, NZ surfing royalty and head priority judge on the World Tour was good enough to field our barrage of questions about the season ahead and how the Kiwi contingent might travel. He also gave us some oil about what the future could possibly hold for surfing in New... Read more
Stoked 53 is here and it's a banger! He's the hottest topic in the New Zealand sporting scene right now. Seemingly, he's burst on to our rugby landscape in a blaze of orange mane - but you'd be wrong, mostly. Tom Robinson's playing Super Rugby about as well as anyone else this season, but really, it's been a long time coming. We sat down with the legend himself to find out how this whirlwind of success came about. Don't be mist... Read more
Stoked 52 is live as ace!

This week we go back to our roots. We talk about the return of the mighty Vodafone Warriors as round 1 of the NRL kicks off for 2019.

(14.14) We also spend some time musing about the world without social media and drop an absolute bombshell at the very end of the podcast. Cheers all and ... Read more
Episode 50 can you believe it? We can't - especially considering our commitment issues. To celebrate we have two very special guests talk about two very different things. First, Sam 'Ibex' Lee - free skiing sensation joins the pod to talk us through one of the most horrific injuries you could imagine and how he is mentally going about coming back from it. (7.15) And also, Paul Wilcox - CEO of the Auckland Racing Club stops in agai... Read more
