The Contact Book with Craig Doyle

Subscribe: Apple | Spotify | Global

The Contact Book is a chat show like no other. Craig Doyle interviews sporting legends about their lives and careers.

As he navigates their highs and lows, he has access to each guest’s contact book and calls up people who have lived through those experiences with them. Craig’s chats with his guests are witty, engaging and enlightening – and while he hears their versions of the stories, he also gets the real inside stories from people who know and love them best. Those with whom they grew up, who trained and played with them and those whose lives they crossed in the sporting world and beyond.

While the guests give access to their contacts they don’t always know exactly who is going to pop up during their interview and what stories they are going to tell. The Contact Book with Craig Doyle is a great listen as we get the insight into these sporting legends and their stories – from all sides.

Episode 7: David Pocock

Former Australian Rugby Union captain, David Pocock hands over his contact book to Craig Doyle who calls up some of those who have played a very important part in his life so far. From his childhood in Zimbabwe where his first coach reveals how parents of the other rugby children complained about him, to one of his brothers explaining why the family had to take a bench press in the middle of a snorkelling holiday. On-field, his friend and former teammate Kurtley Beale spills the beans on match tactics and coach, Robbie Deane explains why he picked “Poey” to lead Australia. In a fascinating programme that reveals many sides of the legendary Australian flanker, David explains why he’s stood up for LGBTQ rights, gives all the details of his arrest during a famous environmental protest and talks about his future political ambitions.
