Episode 7 for A Yank on the Footy will be released on Sunday at around 2 p.m. Melbourne time.

This episode is an interview with Frode Jurnhart from Florida, who is very likely the biggest Western Bulldogs supporter in the eastern half of the United States.  He has some great stories, and traces the origins of his fandom to today.  A really fun discussion with someone that has been onboard with the development of my podcast since its inception.

Episode 6 - A Yank on the Footy

Happy Australia Day!

In this episode, I take a look at the upcoming AFLW season, including my predictions on who plays finals and who ends up winning the premiership.

I also discuss an inspirational photo that I ran across on Twitter, that I think could have the same impact on the game as the iconic photo of Tayla Harris.  Since I recorded this episode, I've received permission to post a link to the photograph.   https://twitter.com/geoffmatho/status/1219795387126435845/photo/1

I'll also make the case that Jess Wuetschner just might be the toughest person on the planet.

We also look at who should have a club first.  Tasmania or Darwin? Should it be an AFL or AFLW club?  

Don’t forget that you can reach me on Twitter @Yank_on or at ayankonthefooty@gmail.com.  You can also find me at A Yank on the Footy on Instagram and Facebook.  

I ask that you share this episode, and this podcast with your family and friends.

This episode is my preview of the AFLW season, where I'll talk about a photo I ran across yesterday that I think could eventually rival the iconic Tayla Harris photo, as well as giving you my predictions on the upcoming season.

Episode 5 - A Yank on the Footy

In this episode, (Part 2 of a 2 part interview) I conclude my first interview of the show as I am joined by long-time Cats fan, Chris Hickey from Mackay Queensland.  Chris is the 2nd cousin of Cats legend, Reg Hickey.

Chris continues telling some great stories about the legendary Reg Hickey, and discusses the state of coaching in the AFL, and how he would revamp the Tribunal.  He also discusses who he believes just might be the Cats break out player for 2020.

Episode 2 - A Yank on the Footy

In this episode I discuss some of my early and recent interactions with footy fans in Australia.

I also explore why I am so impressed with the camaraderie that seems to exist between footy fans, their clubs and the players from their clubs.  I think sports in the US could possibly learn a thing or two from the way the different facets of the footy community embraces one another.
