Interview with SCORKL founder David Hallamore & Ninepin Wetsuits Luke Growney

This episode is a double episode with two Melbourne based entrepreneurs, David Hallamore from the highly successful crowdfunding SCORKL campaign and Luke Growney the owner operator of Ninepin Wetsuits. I caught up with David in an inner city Melbourne pub and learn about the SCORKL journey so far. The same day I had a full day spearfishing outside Port Phillip bay with Luke Growney and we catch up in his backyard with a few brews. This episode (and Melbourne trip) were fully funded by Patron listeners! Thanks legends:)
