Damian returns to the podcast for the first time since the death of his grandfather.

John Roch Kennedy was 15 days away from celebrating his 100th birthday. Having, in the words of Damian, “knicked one through to the keeper” at 99, Damian shares some heartfelt learnings that come with the rawness of emotion that only time can allow.

In this episode we discuss –
** How Papa was like a father to Damian – he shares this fascinating, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting story
** How Damo feels about his grandfather getting so close to 100 Not Out
** Damo watching his son Jackson sing Ave Maria at the funeral
** Will the funeral be the beginning or the end of remembering Papa (this conversation is a reference to episode 311 on the art of grief).
