I was very honoured to be interviewed recently by my favourite podcast Southpaw. I talk with Sam about how I got into political activism, unions big and small, community organising, martial arts, strength training, personal training, the fiendish business models of corporate gyms, powerlifting and union Olympics.

Here’s the episode – good timing for if you’re currently stuck at home with more time than usual for listening, watching and reading.
