Eric Bana joins 50th episode of PodcastOne’s ‘Rusty’s Garage’
PodcastOne Australia’s long-running automotive podcast series Rusty’s Garage is celebrating its 50th episode, and welcomes a special guest for the occasion.
Australian actor extraordinaire Eric Bana joins host Greg ‘Rusty’ Rust from lockdown in Melbourne to chat about all things cars and Hollywood.
They dive into Bana’s restoration of his beloved XB Falcon Coupe, and he tells the story of how it was almost destroyed in the Targa Tasmania Rally.
Bana broke through onto the scene with his role as Con Petropoulous in 1997 Aussie movie The Castle, and speaks about how he thought the script was originally a “piss take”.
He’ll soon co-direct and star in a new movie project he’s written called Mike The Bike.
“I’d interviewed him once or twice before, just briefly, for TV but it honestly blew me away,” Rusty said.
“He’s so grounded and a proper enthusiast. We’re fortunate to mark this milestone episode with a guest of his calibre, for me ticks all the boxes – car lover, motorbike rider and racer!”
Speaking to the most passionate riders, drivers, designers and collectors he knows, Rusty’s guests have shared their stories about the machines they’ve owned, raced, crashed and restored throughout their lives.
Within two years, the ‘Rusty’s Garage odometer’ is about to click over to three million downloads.
