Hi guys,

Thought people might be interested in this special episode of our podcast where we speak at length with Michael Warner from the Herald-Sun about his new book "The Boys Club", in which he examines in very thorough and unforgiving fashion the power and politics within the running of the AFL. This hour-long chat discusses key incidents about which Mick writes in the book, including the Essendon drugs scandal, the Melbourne tanking affair, Ben Cousins and West Coast etc. But we also talk a lot about the media's relationship with the AFL generally, the way pressure is applied, and the various agendas of people within the game. We could easily have got several hours' worth of material from this chat, but still managed to cram plenty into an hour. Hope you find it interesting.

Cheers,
Rohan

Here's a short excerpt from the episode in which we discuss with Mick the relationship between the AFL and the media, specifically why so many of the issues in the book remain unreported by the mainstream media outlets.
