The Grandstanders

The Grandstanders Podcast - 3rd December 2011

The Grandstanders are back to share in your Saturday mornings.  Extra special this week as Criag is determined to host the show with Jane, man-flu and all!  (Tune in for an animated recount of how Craig dragged himself out of bed and into the studios of Mitcham)

First off the bat, switching-off strategies.  In our fast paced, microwave society, do you make timeout a non-negotiable part of your schedule?  What strategies do you use to switch off?

The Grandstanders Podcast - 26th November 2011

On The Grandstanders this week, Craig tells us about Jane’s trip to hospital. Jane currently has pneumonia and was bedridden and in hospital for four days. Jane said due to her current health, she might even fall asleep on air!

The Grandstanders Podcast - 12th November 2011

Bianca ChatfieldThe Grandstanders in 'freestyle' form this week as Craig and Jane involve us in the planning of their show - on air!


Kicking us off, real-life snapshots that we can all relate to.  Craig confesses that he regretfully told a fib this week.  The conversation which started off innocently, slowly grew out of hand -  do you sometimes get caught up in the moment and wish you can take your words back?  Jane shares annecdotally on the positive power of friendship and the negative impact of destructive words..... 


Vitamin supplements - are they for everyone?

Vitamin PackagingUntil a few years ago I was convinced vitamin supplements had their place for some people - including pregnant women and people with health conditions, but not for all of us!


Now I have changed my mind. I think they have their place for almost all of us… I know…. a big call! Unfortunately we’re just not getting what we need from the food that is being produced these days...


The Grandstanders Podcast - 5th November 2011

Scott WintleThis weekend on the Grandstanders - a special treat as top athlete Scott Wintle (pictured) joins us... he was a top athelete before, and still is... after becoming a paraplegic! Into waterskiing and basketball, Scott has broken world records and taken world titles - all without the use of his legs.


We ask Scott about the accident one night on his backpacking trip to Europe, and we find out how as a paraplegic he is actually able to waterski: there's a special piece of equipment that makes it all possible. Hear the details in this weekend's podcast!


The Grandstanders Podcast - 29th October 2011

as.jpgEvery Saturday the Grandstanders are here sharing the love, doing their best to add a little something to your Saturday mornings! 


Things get a little personal for Jane today.....she shares with us the highlight of her week, and answers (slightly probing) questions from Craig regarding her romantic history.  Was marriage a goal?   Was it love at first sight?  Were there fireworks?        


Double is the key word today.  The Grandstanders not only interviews double guests, but also hosts a double segment.....  


The Grandstanders Podcast - 22nd October 2011

anna_segal.jpgWelcome back to the Grandstanders as they wake up Melbournians from their slumber with a "whopper" of a show - as Craig Harper puts it!


Join Craig and the lovely Jane O'Brien for a mind blowing adventure in the world of sports, health and well-being.


The Grandstanders talk about International rules football, a 100 year old marathon runner, horrible jobs and many more. They also have a chat with special guest Anna Segal (pictured).

The Grandstanders Podcast - 15th October 2011

'Melissa GormanLike it or not, we are here.  Like it or not here we are.....to share, enlighten, edify and educate!'   That's how Craig introduces the show at least...and it's true!  The Grandstanders are back again this week - rain, hail or shine (or in the case of our office in Mitcham, internet or no internet!)   


Kicking us off, Jane's over-whelming experience of junior sports coaching.  Are the pressures of competition too much for our youngsters?  Jane explores (experientially) the best way for coaches and parents to deal with trying games......


The Grandstanders Podcast - 8th October 2011

banner2.jpgIt's that time of the week when you are treated to two hours of sports and health and well-being.


That's right folks, the Grandstanders are back again this week to keep you glued to your radios! They kick off the show with a secret that might put the security on guard. Join Craig Harper and Jane O'Brien for this week's edition of the Grandstanders.


The Grandstanders Podcast - 1st October 2011

It's Grandstanders installment number 14 million and 62 (if you believe Craig), on the biggest weekend in the sporting calendar. So of course, we talk the grand final (although this show went to air before Geelong's spectacular win!). Not only is it big here in Melbourne, but also around the country and even other parts of the world.


Gary AyresThere was also another grand final last week - and Gary Ayres, coach of 2011 VFL premiers Port Melbourne, is our special guest this week. He's a former player too - with 5 premiership games and 2 Norm Smith medals under his belt - and joins us to share his thoughts and philosophies on coaching, learning, development and life in general. Plus whether he'd consider an AFL coaching role if a club came knocking...
