Hello and welcome to the new podcasst from Glebe Gorillas Football Club, a grassroots club based in Sydney Australia.
Every week we'll be discussing last week's games, bringing on special guests, and delving into the minds of the special characters who make up this club.

Ep 9. Lockdown special
The Gorillas On Air boys got back into the swing of things after a 6-week layoff due to covid. Government restrictions meant we were unable to record at the iconic Fergus Inn, but thanks to the technological wonders of Zoom and Facebook live, we got the show back on the road. We mull ESFA's baffling decision to finish the season with just over half the games played and nominate our best (and worst) players of the season. Australia's border policy takes a hammering, we weigh up the difficulties of being stranded from home, and wrap it all up with a preview of the new premier league season. All that and more on Who Wants to be a Gorilla on Air. #GGs
Ep 8. Manos de plástico, bad tacos, and dodgy translations - with Jussel Acosta Cruz
This week we were joined by midfield Mariachi and all-round good guy Jussel Acosta Cruz. Gorilla's resident Mexican joined us to discuss translation troubles, sky diving, bad tackles, bad tacos, and life on the south side of the wall. Listen to the spiciest episode yet of Who Wants To Be A Gorilla On Air.
Ep 7. Farm fun with Barney Bigalow, bin dipping, and Archie's silent treatment
This week we were joined by Barney Robertson and Archie Gaunt, two ex-players with plenty of stories to tell. Barney told us about his side-hustle during farmwork, Archie gives insight into the United States justice system, and we cover the first week of the Euros. All that and more on Who Wants to be a Gorilla on Air.
Ep 6. Big Bad John, King Prawn and the Gorilla Glue - with Jono Cooper
This week we were joined by club legend Big Smokey, aka Big Bad John, aka Jono Cooper. This man has been at the club for over 7 years and has done everything from playing, to managing, to running the club behind the scenes. We touch on the Euros, Jono gives us his Gorillas all time 11, and we discuss our vital win over Coogee.
All this and more on WWTBAGOA.
Ep 5. Winston Wolf, Zero Strong and Woy Woy Away - with Mitch Williams and Crystal Geth
After a brief hiatus the pod is back with a bang! This week we were joined by Headbangers FC legend Mitchell Williams and their team sponsor, Crystal Geth. The Welsh boys kept us entertained with their many stories, Winston Wolf takes the recruitment world by storm, we give Dean Windass a bell, Zero Strong quenches our thirst, and poor old Rover takes the blame for Mitch's roadside misdemeanour.

Ep 4. All Hail the Volunteers
For National Volunteer week we hailed the unsung heroes who exist at every club. The guys and girls who give up their precious time to help their local community clubs. Without them, clubs like ours simply wouldn't exist.
With no special guest this week we stuck to the core four hosts of Rupdog, Naz, Tucky and Jimmy. The originals. Los amigos. But the question is, did we have what it takes to carry the pod? We'll leave that for you to decide. With Tucky in a worse for wear state, we bravely soldiered on.
