Chicks Talkin’ Footy

While the Fremantle Dockers are yet to win a game in 2016, I’m enjoying the AFL season immensely.

Yes. Yes, I am.

Why is it so?

Well, it’s because of Chicks Talkin’ Footy.

Yep, JOY 94.9 lets me talk about footy with a crew of diehards: Fiona (Captain) Newton, Bree (Tiger) McAullay, Susannah (Bomber) Mott, Rebecca (Crow) Dahl and Rachael (Hawk) Hopkins each Wednesday night from 8.30pm.

We have 30 minutes to review the games of the recent AFL round and preview the games to come. In between we like to talk about the state of the game and in particular the role and status of women within Aussie Rules.  We talk about the dodgy and the divine on and off the field.

We’re loving the focus on the National Women’s League, including this year’s exhibition games.  In May, Cecilia McIntosh joined us to talk up the game and we discovered just how many serious operations the former bobsledder, javelin thrower, Commonwealth Games medalist and Olympian has survived. Onya Cee! You can listen to the podcast below.

You can check out other episodes of the show on our Facebook page Chicks Talkin’ Footy
