About
This weekly podcast brings influential journalists Sam McClure and Mitch Cleary together to chat about trading, buying and selling of AFL players. Player movement is the game within a game and such is the business of sport, and also the appetite of footy fans, Sam and Mitch will start the conversation before the ball is bounced to start the 2023 season. They will take fans up to the mid-season draft, inside the big re-signings and then to the official trade table at season’s end. But if you think deals don’t get thrashed out until October, then think again because there are names on whiteboards at AFL clubs and in the offices of player agents well before winter strikes. The boys will ensure listeners don’t miss a beat. Produced by Scott Walton Video and Audio by Producey

Trailer: What is Tradies all about?

This weekly podcast brings influential journalists Sam McClure and Mitch Cleary together to chat about trading, buying and selling of AFL players. Player movement is the game within a game and such is the business of sport, and also the appetite of footy fans, Sam and Mitch will start the conversation before the ball is bounced to start the 2023 season. They will take fans up to the mid-season draft, inside the big re-signings and then to the official trade table at season’s end. But if you think deals don’t get thrashed out until October, then think again because there are names on whiteboards at AFL clubs and in the offices of player agents well before winter strikes. The boys will ensure listeners don’t miss a beat. Produced by Scott Walton Video and Audio by Producey Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
