When a Podcast Becomes a Prophecy

Wil Anderson and Charlie Clausen started an AFL podcast with a backdrop of them lamenting their own team’s lack of success. But For Wil – and his beloved Bulldogs – it proved to be a masterstroke.

As we reviewed earlier in the year, the rather small but popular niche of ‘Comedic AFL Podcasts’ got a new player for season 2016, when Bulldogs fan Wil Anderson and Saints fan Charlie Clausen started their latest podcast venture “Two Guys, 1 Cup.” The premise was simple; the two teams they supported had only ever won one premiership each in 100 years, and it sucked to be a supporter of those two clubs.

REVIEW: JRE #812 – Russell Brand and Jim Breuer

Words, words and more words, as two of the most prolific talkers in the world philosophise up a storm.

If there is one thing that both Joe Rogan and Russell Brand are capable of, it’s a lengthy expansion on a point, and this intense three hour conversation is filled with exactly that, multiple times. These two similar counterculture leaders from opposite sides of the Atlantic, who have gathered an army of fans (and critics) surrounding their sometimes controversial views, turned out to be a most intriguing pairing.
