In this episode of Add To Cart, we checkout Sean Ashby, founder and Managing Director of aussieBum, the iconic mens swimwear company born on the sands of Bondi Beach. Back in 2000, unable to find the nylon togs he loved amidst a sea of lycra, Sean created his own and set about knocking on doors. Today, aussieBum’s swimwear, underwear and lifestyle apparel has a cult following and sells in 183 countries worldwide.
Can you recommend a book or a podcast that our listeners should immediately get into?
It is a book that I read probably three times a year, it’s called The Republic and it’s Plato. It’s very philosophical and it talks about society and the construction of society and how our society works. It’s a long read, it’s a difficult read.
But once you understand it, it’s like tapping into the Matrix. Once you understand the code, the world is your oyster.
