Scotty Stevenson is one of the most prolific media personalities in New Zealand – commentary, TV, author, columnist, personality – he can do it all.

We hear about why he left SKY Sport to join Spark Sport and the highs and lows of commentating the All Blacks for the first time at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

We learn about his transformative running journey, and the race that made him cry. He opens up on his biggest influences in sports media and the challenges facing the industry, all from being a bar tender in Auckland after dropping out of university.

Scotty is one of the cleanest thinkers in New Zealand and the breadth and depth of his institutional sports knowledge makes him an authority on so many topics. There were times in this episode when we were totally captivated listening as his fully formed answers seemed to fall out in incredible depth and ease. He’s got something pretty special going on upstairs.
