Ruck Me Dead

Ruck Me Dead

After years of stagnation, the game of Rugby has fresh, shiny new coverage that seems to have breathed life back into the code. So, after years of frustration with the game they supposedly play in heaven, The Betoota Advocate is giving it another go. Our sport's team will be jumping in the booth every week to cover all of the footy action - from the grassroots, the country, and the world. We'll cover the tales of Rugby Australia's Marketing Pigeon, the world-beating Queensland Reds rolling the hapless Kiwi Super Rugby sides, and plenty more in our weekly wrap-up direct outta the heart of the Channel Country, in true Betoota Advocate style.

After stringing three wins in a row together, including two over the World Champion Springboks, the Wallabies have captured the Raeburn Shield. That means they hold the title of the best team in the world. There are a few other things to discuss as well, like the new 15-minute limitation on contact training - which is definitely going to be followed.    See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
