BALLS After Dark.103 Bros before Crowes

This week: Chris Robinson Brotherhood vs the Magpie Salute in a heavyweight brofight that makes the Gallaghers' blood feud look like Gameboy Double Dragon; Sneaker Pimps and triphop's philosophy of drug use as it relates to artistic endeavour; plus fake craft beer, female albums, an unnecessary number of shouts to Dan from At The Drive Thru and a bit too much fucking perspective. Find us on iTunes, and check our playlists on Spotify (album playlist | 2017 mixtape).

BALLS.118 For-Erin Correspondent

In which Beeso and special guest, sports writer Erin Riley, have a reasoned and intellectual discussion about the changing landscape of women's professional sport and the dearth of analysis and nuance in the Australian sports media marketplace. This reasoned and intellectual discussion does not feature the Doc, who spent the two minutes he saw of the Matildas game tweeting about Butt. Get us on iTunes:
