    Matthew Hardy

    Matthew Hardy

    Still in lockdown but managed to get in touch with the very funny Matthew Hardy.
    He's put together a new podcast with friend-of-the-show Lawrence Mooney, who's since moved to Sydney.
    But between talking about that Matthew and Dave get through a decade or more of reminiscing.
    Plenty of stories, former clubs/pubs/bars, trips overseas - remember those? - in one of the longest and funniest Debrief lockdown episodes yet.

    Saturday Afternoon Fever is based on Matthew's book of the same name.
    Search for Saturday Afternoon Fever with Matthew Hardy and Lawrence Mooney where you listen to The Debrief with Dave O'Neil.

    Here's the blurb
    Matthew Hardy, the author of Saturday Afternoon Fever, reads from his best-selling book about a footy fan who’s dreams are denied, as he and Lawrence Mooney constantly digress into the wonderful, hilarious, nostalgic worlds of their childhoods, teenage years, straight into their idiotic young adulthoods. 
    As contemporary men they also discuss relationships, the modern world, ethics, history and philosophy. 
    The big question - Will they ever finish the book?

    What was the last thing you cooked?

    What's the last thing you watched?

    What was the last human contact you had?
