Ryan O’Connell and Brett McKay are joined by fellow Roar Expert Cam Rose in a Victorian-flavoured episode of The Cheap Seats Podcast.

Despite having two thirds of the Taylor Swift Appreciation Society in his midst, Brett does his best to keep things on the straight and narrow, and well away from pop music.

Episode 7 talking points:
• Cam’s thoughts on why the AFL top four is essentially set, and the rise and rise of the Gold Coast Suns;
• Australia’s start to the forgettable ICC Champions Trophy, and Australia A’s thumping of Scotland;
• The continued fallout from State of Origin’s biff, and the Victorian perspective;
• The latest on the British and Irish Lions Tour;
• And everyone’s favourite segment, the Splash and Dash, this week featuring Craig Gower and Clyde Rathbone.

Stay cheap peeps.

    Swiftly….. Pure gold Cam!
    Keep it going boys, really enjoying it. Chad Sayers appreciates it as well! Apparently he’s waiting for Ryan to create an online groundswell of support ala Khawaja!
    Really want to hear Brettles talk about the NBA finals though!

      Yes, I think we should have an NBA Finals segment soon too! The Cheap Seats has the bye next week, but perhaps the week after we’ll add it to the mix.

        What about a bit Tebow magic with his recent signing with the Pats! Really broaden the horizons of the Cheap Seats!

        Brett, I assume that was a typo from Dingo above. He wrote “makes me SICK!”, but actually meant “is AWESOME!”

    A big shout out and thanks to Cam for joining us for Episode 7, it went really well and we finally managed to have a decent chat about AFL for a change. Fair to say we’ll be making that a semi-regular thing..

    And I should add, that when I said at the end “join us again next week..” what I actually mean is in two weeks’ time. Turns out one half of the Cheap Seats has scored an invite to some swanky dinner on the designated recording night next week. 😉
