11 months ago Mandy had an inspirational guest on the breakfast show, who laid his cards on the table, being open about his struggle with depression and substance abuse after an injury in the armed forces. Jack Barden found the will and made the choice to pull himself out and find new meaning and purpose to his life.

This link is to the original interview between Mandy and Jack on the brekky show back in January.

He committed to a trek across the Alps of Norway not just as a personal endeavour but to raise money and awareness for Team Rubicon an organisation that unites the skills and experiences of Australian Defence Force veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams around the globe.

Well the trek is done! Mandy caught up with Jack over online conference to find out how the trek went and what road humps him and his fellow trekkers overcame.  Listen to the chat that was aired on the breakfast show this morning!
