Over the years, we have asked our guests on the Cricket Library Podcast to share their dream net session with us. This question has produced some fascinating insights into the personalities behind those we have asked. Molly Strano is personality personified and her net session selections would make for a cracking session. Let’s find out who is invited!
Magda Szubanski (Sharon Strzelecki)
Magda Szubanski is an Australian actress, comedian, and author, best known for her roles in television shows and films such as “Kath & Kim” and “Babe.” She was born in Liverpool, England, in 1961, but her family moved to Melbourne, Australia, when she was a child.
Szubanski began her career as a writer and performer on sketch comedy shows, including “The D-Generation” and “Fast Forward.” She gained national fame for her portrayal of the character Sharon Strzelecki on the hit Australian sitcom “Kath & Kim,” which ran from 2002 to 2007.
Sharon Strzelecki is a fictional character portrayed by Australian actress Magda Szubanski in the hit Australian television series “Kath & Kim.” The character first appeared in the show’s pilot episode in 2002 and quickly became a fan favourite.
One could only imagine the fun that would be had at a net session attended by Szubanski, a magnificent selection from Strano.
Dennis Rodman is a former American professional basketball player and a well-known personality in pop culture. He was born on May 13, 1961, in Trenton, New Jersey. Rodman played for various teams in the National Basketball Association (NBA), including the Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, and Los Angeles Lakers, where he won five NBA championships. Rodman was a skilled rebounder and defender, earning him the nickname “The Worm” for his tenacious style of play.
In addition to his basketball career, Rodman also had a brief foray into professional wrestling. In 1997, he joined World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and became a member of the New World Order (nWo) wrestling stable. He even had a match at the WCW pay-per-view event “Bash at the Beach,” where he teamed up with Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall against Lex Luger, The Giant, and “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
Despite his success on the basketball court and in the wrestling ring, Rodman has also faced personal challenges and controversies throughout his life. However, he remains a unique and iconic figure in both sports and pop culture and is a welcome addition to the Strano net session.
