Welcome to the Stoked Podcast - a new edition to Herald's list of outstanding audible content.

We're coming in with episode 15 of the series, but if this one tickles your fancy you can take a listen to the backlog here.

This week the Stoked Pod goes international!

We go deep into the mind of New Zealand golfing royalty in the hope of finding out what inspired Phil Mickelson's brain explosion at the US Open. We do this with the help of the great man Phil Tataurangi - all the way from the USA!


Other topics mused include:

Mitch's personal golf woes. (2:25)

All Blacks third test against France and we have debutants, debutants for everyone! (9:45)

Sandwich bread Vs toast bread - what's the deal with that stuff? (21:40)

Phil Tataurangi enlightenment - he's a PGA commentator! (23:15)

The Prime Minister's potential baby names - in between recording the pod and writing this it turns out the first baby of NZ is indeed a girl (congratulations!), so Mitch was very wrong. (40:25)

Cheers ay — STAY STOKED!
