Bryan Worthington, what an absolute bloody legend. In his 20's, Bryan was the sole Rise Miner at Mt Charlotte in Kalgoorlie. He then had plenty of years working in and around WA Airlegging, Jumbo Operating and Managing and then spearheaded the setup of Byrnecut's first ever offshore contract at Bulyanhulu in Tanzania. This is an unbelievable yarn where you'll hear about:

- How Bryan blew himself up in Rise

- The cunning trick behind how he always made his son Boof lay the rails when they were Airlegging

- Why a 7 foot Maasai piggy backed his mother on a 800km trip just because she wanted to meet Bryan in Tanzania.

and plenty plenty more.

Ken Miller is an absolute Aussie mining legend. He had a well decorated 45 year career in the Underground Mining industry, working all over the country and throughout the world. Mt Isa, Kambalda, FIFO WA, Freeport and Bulgaria, Kenny has done it all. We attempted to condense his 45 year career into one episode, hence why this is a 3 hour marathon. It is also a very emotional interview in parts, where Kenny had some near misses and also lost mates due to Mining accidents throughout his career. You will gain plenty of Mining knowledge throughout this yarn and lot about maintaining a high standard of work. As Kenny said, "If it was worth doing something, it was worth doing it right".

It was an absolute honour to interview Kenny and thanks very much for coming on mate. Sit back and enjoy everyone.

Well this was a very emotional and powerful interview. Robina Haines lost her husband Nigel suddenly and tragically in 2015. Nigel passed away whilst on site working at the Yandi Iron Ore project. He suffered a cardiac arrest from a blood clot, leaving behind Robina and their 3 children Jaxon, Savannah and Orlando. Then 12 months later, Robina was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

After going through the fight of her life, Robina now dedicates her life to helping other families that have suffered a similar tragedy. She has written 3 books, that can be purchased at www.robinahaines.com.au. Her first book "Hello Grief Be My Friend" takes you through first-hand both the journey of Robina's grief and her fight with Breast Cancer. Her other 2 books, "My Shining Star" and "My Warrior Mum" are children's books that Robina wrote to help her son Orlando through the horrible time of losing his father. 

This is a very powerful interview and if you know anyone that is going or has gone through a similar tragedy, please forward this episode onto them. Robina's strength, resilience and positive attitude may just let these people know that one day, everything will be ok.
