BBQ is good for you

This was a special one for us. Mental Health, especially for guys, in NZ is a major priority and we've all either been touched by the Black Dog, or know someone who is battling. BBQ can be an incredible point of release and community for many of us. So, this week we sat down with Rob Dunne, Country Manager for Movember NZ to talk about what they do, how you can put yourself in a better place or be there to help a mate. We added the legend Luke Seeney into the mix to talk about what the NZBA is doing in tis space too. And of course, we put Rob through his paces on Ten Burning Questions!  Check it out.  https://blog.feedspot.com/barbecue_podcasts/
