Larry P. Jane ,

Made me love footy again

I was so sick of mainstream footy coverage and this podcast was my saving grace. It’s the only mid week content I consume. Each host is thoughtful, smart, authentic and they know their footy. Highly recommend to AFLM and AFLW fans alike. Go footy!

Doctor Zen ,

So much more than footy

Started listening in the first season of AFLW, and have become completely hooked by the commentary and discussion. This podcast is so much more than sports. It's about culture, leadership, coaching, respect, inclusion, and so much more -- just using footy as the lens to focus all these ideas.

My only complaint is that I want it all year round, not just when footy is on.

BigBrain61 ,

Courageous.

What separates the good sports pods from the great ones is how well they cover every aspect of the sport, from on the field, down to the cultural aspects of it. The half dozen hosts of the OSP are passionate about the game of footy, not just as journalists and observers, but as fans of the game. To touch on subjects such as sexism, racism, bigotry and the like is downright courageous, but it is counterbalanced by the fun takes on aspects of the sport. Moreover, the hosts themselves are just fun to listen to. I feel like I'm sitting at a table outside a restaurant listening to six friends talk about Aussie Rules. Fantastic, and worth a listen.
