On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Jeremy Wells. 

Jeremy is one of New Zealand’s best and highest profile broadcasters. Five days a week he co-hosts the Matt and Jerry breakfast radio show on Hauraki, and Seven Sharp on TVNZ, and on weekends can often be heard commentating sport with the Alternative Commentary Collective. 

In this episode we talk about the opportunity cost of having such a busy work schedule, why getting expelled from school was the lowest point of his life, the magical aura of Mikie Havoc and Newsboy, working with Hilary Barry and Matt Heath, the irony of replacing Mike Hosking and what the future holds. 

Jeremy’s style of broadcast and comedic timing was a huge influence for us growing up. You might be able to tell but we were pretty excited for this one – and had big expectations. And Jeremy delivered. You’ll love this.
