Outside 50 with your hosts Rick Shaibani, Tara Cilke and Ben Martinez
Ep21 of Outside 50 is a fantastic chat with Paddy Smallwood of the Bogota Bulldogs in Colombia Sth America. Paddy originally from Bairnsdale 3 hrs south east of Melbourne, tells of his journey to establishing one of the first teams in Sth America and certainly the first team to play games against USA teams.
The Bogota Bulldogs hit the world footy news recently when they played games against the reigning USAFL National Champions the Austin Crows and then the Crows main adversaries the Denver Bulldogs.
Starting and building an Aussie Rules team in a non English speaking nation like Colombia is no easy task, and takes a lot of work and luck as Paddy relates and given that Sth American countries are so entrenched in the game of soccer, it is hats of to Paddy and his clubmates to see what they have achieved so far.
As we know footy is in hold for now, but the Bogota Bulldogs have high hopes still of playing games regularly in the USA whilst further developing the game south of the equator.
You can find out more about the Bogota on their website http://www.bogotabulldogs.com/

Camp Hell: Anneewakee
The Anneewakee Treatment Center for Emotionally Disturbed Youth operated in Douglasville, Georgia for over 25 years. Purportedly, it was a place that parents could send their troubled kids for help. But in reality, it was a breeding ground for abuse. This is the story of Anneewakee, as never told before.
