Andy Gourley is a 47-year-old pastor, former accountant, skateboarding fan and the founder of Red Frogs, a volunteer group providing support and a positive peer presence to large groups of young people.

Every year, since 1997, Andy and his team have travelled to the Gold Coast to help partying teens stay out of trouble.

Your host is Mia Freedman.
With thanks to special guest Andy Gourley
