I have some very exciting guests lined up and new behind the scenes content to share. To start off the new year, for black history month I wanted to do something different. I got together a couple guests to educate you on specific topics that needed to be discussed in this game. It was an incredible honor to have a black icon in the footy world, someones who’s a pioneer for blacks in this game, Ray Gaddis!

Listen to us discuss:
