    Loved it! Thanks, John, for letting us know about it. Fascinating discussion about sport and its implications and significance for Australia and Australians, brilliantly timed for during the Olympics and the pointy end of the football seasons, with a great spread of wonderful panelists, and presented very ably by Paul Barclay.
