Between Two Beers Podcast

Good questions. Great guests. Few beers....


episode 73: Lance Cairns: The Story That Could Not Be Told

Last week we flew to Gisborne (Thanks to Air New Zealand’s Grabaseat) to talk to Lance Cairns about his incredible life. In the first 30 minutes we’d heard stories about Don Bradman, Johnny Cash and the Queen!

It was a conversation that wouldn’t have been possible for nearly 50 years due to his hearing impairment, but thanks to his cochlear implant – we had an afternoon we won’t ever forget
