Bringing out your inner Sportsgeek

in iTunes by Lukeysi from Australia on November 27, 2015

Stumbled across this podcast over the last month and have now gone back and listened to over most of the episodes. I haven't listened to one where I haven't learning something new and been inspired… I even had a tear listening to episode 74. I look forward to meeting Sean at some point over the next few years and attending SEAT myself!
