We go behind the scenes for a meandering, sprawling conversation with some of the most interesting people in sport.

    Episode 26 - Chris McQueen

    Episode 26 - Chris McQueen

    Chris McQueen  is one of Rugby League's contradictions - hard and tough on the field, thoughtful and softly spoken off the park. In this episode of The Stack Report he speaks of his journey from rural Queensland to NRL glory. Along the way there was a comical run in with Russell Crowe, serious clashes with big name coaches and Origin glory for Queensland. He had to relinquish Maroons eligibility in order to represent England and now he's on the comeback trail from a career threatening neck injury... oh and did we mention his pet snake?! A great conversation with a deep thinker.

    Episode 25 - Kevin Naiqama

    An interview about the intersection of faith, family and sport. Kevin Naiqama might have the biggest heart in rugby league. The Fijian winger speaks to The Stack Report about the sacrifices his Mum made to put food on the table, how rugby league gave him a pathway and why representing Fiji makes him cry.  Honest, raw and heartwarming.

    Episode 24 - Josh Reynolds

    Episode 24 - Josh Reynolds

    His nickname is 'The Grub', but you'd be hard pressed to find a better person in the NRL. Josh Reynolds spoke to The Stack Report about his rise to NRL stardom at the Bulldogs, helping NSW break Queensland's Origin series streak and his move to the Wests Tigers. Reynolds explains how he knew he was no longer wanted at Canterbury and what he has loved about the Tigers. Open and honest, self-deprecating and thoughtful, Reynolds is a great interviewee.

As he enters the final chapter of his career Benji speaks with The Stack Report about returning to the Tigers, fatherhood and whether 2018 will be his final year in the NRL.

    Episode 21 - Phil Davis

    Episode 21 - Phil Davis

    GWS Giants Captain Phil Davis might be a defender, but he's quite forward thinking. He joins The Stack Report to talk about how you build strong culture and protect it (cough, cricket, cough), the possible return of COLA, the idea of playing AFL Grand Finals outside Victoria, the pain of losing prelim finals, why he loves playing against the best and how the Giants might be underrated in 2018. You won't find many AFL Captains who are willing to be this candid.

Love it

Only discovered recently and bingeing on episodes on a trip through the middle east - does not look like there’s been any new podcasts for a while? Is it just the back catalogue?
