The Grade Cricketer Podcast

Rig. Circuit. Champ.

Cricket is great if you're into things like wasted youth, failed relationships, sun damage and broken dreams. A weekly show featuring news, views and interviews with major names from across the cricket scene.

"There was lots of talk of gas and trucks," said Cameron White, who earlier unleashed a Nutrigrain-worthy roar after overseeing the Stars' capitulation in BBL 08. Rob Quiney also joined to provide the Stars perspective, and before that we caught up with Dan Brettig, author of Bradman and Packer - the two greatest silverbacks in Australian cricket lore. There's a season review in there too. Thanks to all who've made this our best podcast season yet. We'll be back.

Fresh from the Australian Cricket Awards, our voices are in a deeper register (result) as we gather wearily to discuss the red (black) carpet, and to take your many and varied questions.

Australia dismantled Sri Lanka and all problems are now solved, England capitulated to the West Indies and it means nothing, we catch up with Ben Jones - The Wiz from CricViz (our words), before chatting with Glenn Maxwell about matters of national interest. In our view, #AskTGC is worth a listen too.

As we near season's end, a big thanks to Toby Shain for mixing our show. He is the voice behind Chop King Cologne, Bravago and all the other (good) fake ads we do, and what a velvety voice it is.

Finally, if you're looking for post-1975 after-dinner material, contact us at We're probably affordable, and we travel.

Australia rediscovers that sweet opiate of winning, The Heat claim the WBBL, why the BBL feels bad, England out for 77, deferring to the cult of Lloyd Pope, and your #AskTGC questions

Discussing the ODI results we've already forgotten, Australia's deep, deep needs against Sri Lanka, Kurtis Patterson's warranted inclusion, the WBBL semi's - also known as the best cricketing moments of the summer, the BBL trudging on, Australia's next wunderkind Jason Sangha, and Adam Zampa, who combines with us to cover grade cricket, veganism, and rare unit spinners. As ever, your (and our) Fatherhood issues close the show, with #AskTGC.
