Episode 51 - 1938

We get stuck into our first season of the 2020 year, looking at 1938. And things kickoff right where we left them, Jock McHale still has great aspirations for Collingwood, but for the 3rd year in a row the tribunal rears its head. Checker Hughes, at Melbourne, is still trying to beat him. Carlton think they finally have the pieces of the puzzle to make it all the way to the grand final. StKilda win their first flag, South complete their fall from grace, Fitzroy begin life without Haydn Bunton. And a schism develops between the leagues in Victoria.

Episode 50 - Wrap up of 1921 - 1937

After another year of recording episodes we decided to end the 2019 year with a look back at some of the interesting stories and facts we have discovered about the Australian Football from the years 1921 - 1937. 

We also look at some of our shows stats across the year

look at the results of our yearly awards, including things like best goal, best rule idea, best on field incident, and more. 

and to finish off we try the almost impossible task of naming our team of the years 1921 - 1937. 

 

Many thanks to everyone who listened in this year, get ready for a big 2020!!!

Episode 49 - 1937

We are living in a world where Collingwood has won back to back flags to take their tally to 11, head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. Their competition would come from the Checker Hughes led demons, who had in 36 returned to finals, and this team accomplished something they hadn’t since 1921. A mid season trip changes things for Fitzroy (specifically Haydn Bunton). The foreign Legion finally surrender despite a favorite son returning to the club. Carlton begin to slip and Hawthorn are in a spot they never expected….

Episode 48 - 1936

At the beginning of the 1936 season Collingwood were reigning premiers, although South Melbourne fans would continue to cry that they only won it because Bob Pratt was hit by a truck. Both teams would again feature in the pointy end of the season. The press argue over high scoring, We set the record straight on Captain Blood, Fitzroy have their worst season so far but end with a shining light, Richmond have some losses to teams they have not lost too in league history, and we have a very special guest with us, from the"They Came to Play" and "Outer Sanctum" podcasts, we welcome Tess Armstrong!

Also you will probably notice a few chops and changes in the recording. After our initial recording there were a few other things we wanted to put in, so it won't sound as smooth, but the episode is chock full of interesting tid bits, some songs and fun stories

 language warning, there is 1 use of profanity in this episode!

Episode 46 - 1934

The team to beat in 1934 were the reigning premiers, South Melbourne or as some called them, The Foreign Legion, with their team of talented imports, taking the flag from Richmond in 1933.

Other teams started to employ a similar tactic to build their teams up.

Richmond got off to a flyer, looking very dangerous, while South’s form was actually up and down. Collingwood was back near the top with an injection of youth. North Melbourne’s optimism doesn’t last long, and Footscray’s coach finds himself in an interesting predicament. The Brownlow race ends in interesting circumstances and Carlton and Collingwood revisit the animosity of the 1910 grand Final.

Richmond come off the back of a premiership and look to make it back to back, however Melbourne have poached their premiership coach in their own attempt to achieve success. Hawthorn have to deal with not 1, but 2 tragedies throughout the season. Fitzroy charge towards a top 4 finish, Essendon, despite the poor year, unearth a future champion, Collingwood look towards a rebuild, South Melbourne continue their recruiting spree and half of the teams in the league have new coaches. And to top all that we get some new team nicknames.

Episode 44 - 1932

This is the 1932 episode, also known as 'Frankenpod', it has been a busy few weeks for those of us that run this podcast, so we have recorded bits here and there when we could, we weren't always in the same room together. This is the result, not as smooth as we would like, but ready to go. 

We also officially welcome new kick to kick host Anna (AKA; Moz) to the show!

Here is a rundown for the episode. Things once again implode at Stkilda, while South Melbourne have devised a genius plan to lure new recruits over to play for them. Speaking of new recruits a well known one begins at Fitzroy, while new captain Haydn Bunton takes over. Geelong struggle to maintain the same form they had in the previous year and are in doubt of playing finals. Collingwood continue to play at a high standard and Carlton unearth their own new recruits that help them stay up the top.

The hit songs played over the history section are Louis Armstrong's All of Me, and Bing Crosby singing "Brother can you spare a dime".

Episode 43 - Slattery Media Group

Earlier this year we sat down with Geoff Slattery to talk about publishing football books, reporting on the footy and the best way to tell the history of the game. 

It was a great chat, and great for us to meet the man responsible for publishing so many of the books that we use in our research. 

Check out the collection of books available here - https://books.slatterymedia.com/

Episode 42 - 1931

The 1931 season saw a few major changes come into effect across the league, the most interesting one being the Page McIntyre finals system….finally. There was also an amendment to the Brownlow voting. And the introduction of the 3-2-1 season that we now know. Could Collingwood pull off the impossible and win 5 premierships in a row? Could the Blues or the Tigers finally overcome a faltering Collingwood, or would a new coach help Geelong over the machine. Plus Haydn Bunton finally pulls on the boots, Hackenschmidt closes the curtain on an amazing VFL run, and Footscray push for an improbable finals run.
