    Our video content from Instagram of Friday Night Footy with Meg Hutchins and Steph Carroll and Amy Burgoyne on 01/07/2021

    For any listeners not following on Instagram we have shifted to putting up some video content on a Friday Night as alternative viewing at half time of the AFL games.

    This was the third instalment of Friday Night Footy chats which was split between a conversation with Meg Hutchins and her wife Steph Carol and Amy Burgoyne. 

    We discussed Megs retirement from her football career of 250 V/AFLW games and the special on field celebration after kicking a match sealing goal.

    The second interview with Amy Burgoyne was ahead of her husbands Shaun Burgoyne's 400th AFL game. A massive achievement that she has watched and supported for over 20 years.

    The Review // Click bait, hooks, lines and sinkers.

    The Review // Click bait, hooks, lines and sinkers.

    On the review this week we are joined by Michelle Andrews, co-producer and co-star of the incredibly popular podcast 'Shameless' alongside Zara McDonald. 

    Michelle helps us break down some of the themes that emerged from our interview this week with climate activist and conservationist, Emma Pocock.

    We are honoured to have her input and experience as a journalist as we delve into the media landscape, the misogyny of clickbait headlines and the sensationalising of personal stories.

    Michelle also tells us about her very exciting week - including getting engaged (!!) and we of course chat a little bit of footy with the Richmond Tigers faithful.

    You can follow Michelle at @michelleandrews, Shameless at @shamelesspodcast and listen to the episode of 'Scandal' referenced in this discussion at https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-slut-shaming-of-lara-bingle-part-one/id1352875216?i=1000518560438.

Beautifully uplifting

I stumbled across this podcast seeking new outlets post lockdown having binged everything available (especially as a Victorian). I just listened to your interview with Isabella Carlstrom-Hope & I want to say thank you, to you and to her.
She is magic. Her intelligence both emotionally and culturally is inspiring & aspirational.
