Podcast: Martin Flanagan on Ron Barassi and Melbourne FC (via Speakola)

In the lead up to the 2021 AFL Grand Final, great friend of the Almanac Tony Wilson alerted us to the Speakola podcast episode featuring Martin Flanagan and his reflection on the struggles and pride of a plethora of great Melbourne Football Club people – including some names well known around the ‘Nackery traps!


2018 may have been a false dawn, but the Demons have ultimately been cleansed and this engrosing monologue is just as powerful as it was when first delivered.

For those of you who remember how 2018 played out (somewhat ironic the scene of redemption took place in Perth while the Eagles remained bystanders!) you may have heard Matt Quartermaine’s response to the original, but with a destinctly more ‘Emu Export’ feel – you can also listen to that HERE and his 2019 generalised follow up HERE.
