Friends With Money #28: Howzat - cricket reduces anxiety, says Adam Zwar

Hosted By

Australian journalist, actor, and writer Adam Zwar tells us about his love of cricket, real estate, and lost cats.

On the release of his new book Twelve Summers which talks about his 12 formative summers, the milestones, and unforgettable moments linked to the game he loves, Zwar spoke to Money's managing editor Julia Newbould on the Friends with Money podcast and covered topics from how it all started with eating honey, to the Ashes, to his worst investment in short films.

  • He once worked as an escort driver, which was really easy until it got dangerous
  • He loves to spend money on travel and streaming services
  • He calls out lost cats as his Achilles' heel.
