Kick and Coffee

Thank you to Carlton Football Club, Box Hill Hawks Women, Megan and all the wonderful people who came to hang out with us at Kick and Coffee on Sunday! 

Come and have a kick with us!

Hello gorgeous listeners to the Outer Sanctum podcast. Let's get together and kick the footy and chat footy over coffee. This is a free event but you need to book a place as numbers are limited. Bring money for coffee and closed toe shoes for kicking. We cannot wait to see you. This is a family friendly event. This year the kick will take place at Princes Park so we can reminisce about the first night of the AFLW. Thank you to Carlton F.C for hosting us.

Come and join us at Princes Park. Book here or look at our events page! FREE!

The Bounce

The Bounce - do you love it or could you live without it?

Emma has finally made enough sandwiches and all the balls are put away, which is lucky because that was the last video in this series. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to Mat and Adam for making them. And thanks to you lot for chuckling along. x

The Huddle

You are looking at a future Shinboner and Cam! Amren and Cam from The Huddle @nmfcofficial are our guests this week. They were both delightful. You will love hearing Amren's football story. #nmfc #aflwPing: @emmakearney89 @bridgeybarker #shinboner

Move in May!

From Emma (on Instagram):

Today was a beautiful celebration of equality and inclusion thanks to @moveinmay by @standupevents. Angie aka @gagagreene is a constant source of inspiration for all of us. She is bashing a path of equality which will save lives. Today my daughters got a chance to dance in the safe space she has created. They danced with a bunch of women who inspire me daily and to whom they already look up to. These women @meghutchins25 @meggielaura@_katiebrennan @melissahickey18@alisonsmirnoff @samjanelane@thisisjessharris and @darcyvee are pioneers who bash a path for us all too. We danced our hearts out today. Angie, you are Princess Poppy to me and my little trolls, you are creating a corner of the world I want to live in. Huge shout out to @uncannyannieblog and @murphybrownthelab who I had the pleasure to chat to. Love is love is love and this is my love letter to you Angie. Em X🌈🌈🌈 #moveinmay #loveislove

Mothers' Day

From Kate:

Today the chicks and I got to be in the guard of honour for the first EVER home game for Hawks women. They didn't win, but we did see the first woman to ever kick a goal for the brown and gold, and that was pretty damn fabulous. 

Box Hill Hawks

We are honoured to announce that we are the inaugural @BoxHillHawks @VFL women's #1 ticket holders! We will, of course, bring you news from every corner of football but we're very proud to be the number one ticket holders!


The other day Sophie turned 6. She is the little voice you hear say "YOU'RE LISTENING TO THE OUTER SANCTUM PODCAST". She had a cracking birthday which culminated with Katie Brennan and Mel Hickey instigating the Change Her Game function members to sing her Happy Birthday. Sophie will never forget this night. She will also never remember a time when strong, awesome women didn't play professional football. Her teenage years will be supported with images and messages of strong, fun,fit, healthy women doing awesome things. This is in no small part thanks to Alison Smirnoff and Change Her Game. Alison is an agitator of change, a supporter of change and an agent of change. We are proud to know her and support her. Huge thanks and congratulations to Al. Change Her Game has some exciting programs in the pipeline which will also change the game for women.  - Emma Race

One Week at a Time...

We got to see the amazing Premiership coach Bec Goddard and the incredible godmother of football Susan Alberti at the Hawthorn v Adelaide game at the G this week. Emma's tipping at The Age has been pretty good. How's all your tips going?

We are thrilled to be part of the ABC podcasts and will be at the ABC for the duration of the football season! Here's a small taster of how we roll...

AFLW Grand Final Time

This week on The Outer Sanctum we celebrate the AFLW with players Libby Birch and Kirby Bentley. We review the season with Josh Vanderloo from the AFL. While Adelaide coach Bec Goddard gives us some rare and hilarious insights and joins the girls for coaches karaoke. And we say THANK YOU to The Age for having us during the AFLW!
