Top Five SSS Podcasts of 2018

We’ve had some big names on the Stanley Street Social Podcast this year. So we thought we’d run through the top five pods of the year. Keeping in mind, there were allot of unlucky pods to miss out on the illustrious top five.

#1

Juan Antonio Flecha

On the eve of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race we caught up with Juan Antonio Flecha to discuss his long and fruitful career. We met him just 30 minutes prior to recording and asked if we could do a podcast with him. He couldn’t have been better about it. He gave us 90 minutes of his time and weaved some great tales about his time as a pro. The Spaniard, who was a cobbled classic specialist, talked about all things cycling and what life has had in store post cycling. To listen, click here.

Lachlan Morton

The most mythical man in the pro peloton. He jumped into the World Tour as a 21-year-old with Garmin. Morton discusses the details of his tricky two years with the American outfit and dives into sharing stories about sneaking home to Australia for a few weeks with the team left in the dark about his movements. His move to Jelly Belly in 2015 provided Morton with the environment to get back to his best with a more balanced lifestyle. He talks about his time there and his decision to move back to the World Tour in 2017. To listen, click here.

Max Gawn

The Demons ruckman is a huge cycling fan. Maybe more knowledgeable than the SSS co host, Alby Clements. The 208cm cycling enthusiast caught up with us just days before the Demons key round 23 clash with GWS. He talks about his injury plagued first few years in the AFL and how he became the best ruckman in the competition. To listen, click here.

282 AFL games, a premiership player, a cycling fan and a man who battled metal health issues through the peak of his playing career. Throughout the podcast, we chatted about his time as one of the best players in the AFL and how he coped with depression during the peak of his powers. His new project, Puka Up, is discussed at length and we talk about the power of the bike and how it can bring people closer. To listen, click here.
