E04S01 Sunday Dech
On a special edition of the podcast, my guest, interviewed live on location in Adelaide on an Illawarra Hawks road trip, is Hawks swingman and absolute favourite of mine, Sunday Dech. I just want to remind everyone to please rate, review and subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts and SoundCloud. Your feedback helps me to improve the quality of the podcast. I call myself the President of the Sunday Dech Fan Club, and it was a huge pleasure to chat with Sunday (ironically on a cold Sunday evening) about his basketball journey, and his season so far with the Illawarra Hawks, as well as Sunday cheekily calling out the worst dressed player on the Hawks! I hope you all enjoy listening to the episode as much as I did recording with Sunday. He’s a really fun guy, and I hope it comes across in the episode. Enjoy!

E01S01 Cam Tragardh
Welcome to the inaugural episode of the NBL-One-On-One Podcast. Our first ever guest is 324 NBL gamer, the big battle cruiser himself, Cam Tragardh. On the episode, Cam helps illustrate the story of his career. From his first professional contract with the Townsville Crocs, moving south to the Wollongong Hawks and how that almost didn't happen, becoming captain of the Melbourne Tigers, and the success of his time with the Cairns Taipans. We then move into a conversation about the NBL. From the dark old days of playing in front of 1000 people in Singapore, why there aren't more European imports, why the Townsville Crocs will never return, a sustainable model for the Cairns Taipans, the Sydney Kings pick and roll defensive coverage in #NBL20, and Cam's thoughts on the Glen Rice Jr situation. Finally, I hit Cam with some quick hitters: Who is the best #NBL20 Point Guard; Better player in 5 years, Harry or Sam Froling; Better MVP season, Corey 'Homicide' Williams or Brian Conklin; Better coach to play for, Trevor Gleeson or Aaron Fearne, and; Is LaMelo Ball the #1 pick in the NBA Draft. I sincerely hope you enjoy the episode. Remember to rate and review the podcast. Your feedback will help improve the show.
