Girls Play Footy Podcast returns in 2018 for fourth season

With less than a month to go until the start of the second AFLW season, the longest running podcast on women’s Australian rules football has returned for a fourth year.

Last year, 39 episodes of the Girls Play Footy Podcast were produced, featuring more than 43 hours of original content, four state league reporters, 137 guests from 12 countries, and for the first time, was aired on commercial radio in Melbourne (RSN Carnival).

As in 2017, future episodes will air first at 6pm (AEST) Wednesday evenings on RSN Carnival, and then be available for download from Thursday mornings at both Soundcloud and Apple Podcasts.

In the first episode for 2018, we catch up with Karl Jackson from Champion Data to talk about the new AFLW Prospectus, which takes presents data and analysis on every player who took to the field in the first AFLW season.

We put in a phone call to the Top End to chat with Rebecca Dunbar from the Darwin Buffettes, about how her footy is going in the NTFL, plus her trip to California with the Aussie Sparks.

Also on the podcast, we have highlights from our chat with Melbourne Demons star, ‘Ms Football’ Katherine Smith, on what she thinks of the standard of US women’s footy, plus who is the better player: Isabel Huntington or Chloe Molloy?

Finally, we discuss the ten best AFLW matches of 2017 with Girls Play Footy co-founder and editor, Matt Marsden.

You can download the first episode for 2018 – or any of the previous 100 original and ‘best of’ episodes from across the past three years – on Apple Podcasts, or you can listen via the Soundcloud player below!
