Joe Daymond on the Australia Cricket Cheating Scandal, Fortnite, the worst jobs in the world + MORE – Episode 20

Today I was very tired as a result of being up since 3am working. But it isn’t a usual thing. In fact, it was largely a one off.

On today’s episode we talked about the Australia Cricket cheating scandal and how ugly the two main culprits are. Also chatted about Fortnite and how they have executed the perfect example of the video game freemium model that has worked well for...

Joe Daymond on losing 20kgs in 6 months, camera phones at concerts, Dunedin Fringe Festival + MORE - Episode 17

This week was short and sweet. Mainly because I waited until Monday morning to record an episode that was due to be released on Monday morning. This week I had a yarn about my experiences from first year uni and how I put on 25kgs and then lost it.

Joe Daymond on Oprah running for president, working a 9-5 vs entrepreneurship and how to throw a party - Episode 13

This week Joe couldn’t get any guests because name dropping everyone that’s been on the show didn’t work so he’s resorted to another hour of absolute nonsense talking to himself.
