My favourite podcast

I found this podcast about a year ago and haven’t missed an episode since. Thanks legends. The only down side is that I don’t support the same footy team as anyone on the pod ☺️.

'Outer' this world!

Now that we've gotten bad puns out of the way... listen in close.... I have a WARNING for you...

If you read this review and then decide to listen to this podcast - your life will now consist of BTOSP (before the outer sanctum pod) and ATOSP (after the outer sanctum pod).

There's no going back... to mainstream sports media. Not that you'd want to anyway, that's why you're here isn't it? Trawling the internet in the dark of night hoping no one catches you cheating on big media. Tired of waking up every morning and looking over at Sam Newman's face? *shudder*. Sick of the same click bait and bad takes day in day out? Looking for some balanced coverage of AFLW & AFLM?

You've come to the right place. You're safe here. You've found your people. Welcome to the outer.
