  • 62. We did one to prove Dane is alive

    After the weekend that was, we thought we should organise a welfare check on our dear Dane. We knew it was in his best interests to not miss his flight so we scheduled a pod right before it in the hope he wouldn't miss this one. The odds weren't in his favour but much like his beloved pies, never count them out. We unpacked Dane's thoughts on the Granny before he heads to the States to pick up on normal life after 6 weeks of bachelor living.

  • 61. Guest Friend - Tom Morris

    He wanted to return to the media and well, I'm not sure we were the professionals he was hoping to surround himself with again.A cancel culture soul mate, one of the most trolled and hated people in media in 2022 and bloody good Journo, Tom Morris came to kick it in the weeds with us this morning. In what was a fun and candid chat we did everything we could to get his to reveal his sources and give us some breaking news but he stood true. Some fab insights to the highs the lows, the rights and the wrongs of Sports Journalism.Enjoy!Follow and support us elsewherePodcast : @swannyandfriendsDane: @danes84Samantha @samantharichesRalphy: Friend: Tom Morris @tommorris32Support us in the Merch store: Shop here :)
  • 60. Why we didn't do a pod last week.

    We thought we owed it to the listeners to explain how Dane cancelled on his own podcast plans and left you the people with out a show to listen to. In what would have likely been our best pod, ever. Surely. It will now never be made. Samantha was reminded, just who's podcast she is on and to wait her turn when Dane is talking, We unpack the Brownlow and Preview the Granny along with some quality Listener questions...Here is this weeks episode.

  • 55. Guest Friend - Champion Data's Daniel Hoyne

    Never has Samantha been more nervous about a guest coming on and not to be mistaken for excitement, lets be clear. But Ralph assured her that Daniel Hoyne from Champion Data knew what he was getting himself in for. Hoyne got Dane onside early with some impressive stats from his time in the Magpie Guernsey and further fluffed him up when talking about him as the pioneer of rotations but soon got into a thick All Australian debate.Daniel dumbed down expected score for us average joes and explained why Dustin Martin has had one of the most impressive seasons in the league without the recognition! Find out who replaces Nic Nat as the leagues best player, who should win the flag and listen to an intriguing chat with Daniel Hoyne from Champion Data.Follow us on the socials@swannyandfriends@danes84@rtralphy@samantharichesSpecial Guest: Daniel Hoyne can be followed @hoyney35 or heard on SEN on Tuesday nights and seen on the Herald Sun website via "Pure Footy"
  • 54. That's not a face washer

    News flash (to samantha only really) Pre Finals bye round is upon us so no Maths Science this week, instead we covered such as should Samantha jump on and the fact that a Carlton loss on the weekend coincidentally means that the Power Rankings will be back this week.Dane delved into some very clever theories around the amount of players on a field/ground/court having a direct correlation to the amount the #1 draft pick would actually effect a teams success and we played a game of word association for the teams that didn't make September footy in season 2023.Follow us on the socials@swannyandfriends@danes84@rtralphy@samanthariches
