108. Gas Truck Pt II, with Jackson Bird & Andrew McDonald
Play episode · 1 hr 16 min
This week we discuss the art of the Mankad: what’s the best way to celebrate ruining someone’s weekend? The BBL finals are finally here, but are we excited about the big dance, or suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome? Meanwhile, New Zealand’s U19’s team are cheerfully carrying opponents off the field while ours are sledging Indian blokes on Instagram; seems like the future is in good hands. But what’s the “right kind” of youth indiscretion?

Jackson Bird joins us to talk about red ball/white ball social dynamics, BBL contract chat, and bowling on Australia’s worst fucking pitch (MCG), before Budgy Smuggler CEO Adam Linforth comes into the studio to give a live performance review of TGC’s ad reads, and reminisces about captaining former school mate Jackson Bird’s cricket team to victory. We also squeeze in a chat with future Australian coach Andrew McDonald while struggling to compose ourselves over his dulcet baritone register.

And #AskTGC tackles a range of psychological issues, including more dream analysis (submitted by the wife of a TGC host), the hidden meaning behind wearing an official test playing shirt in public, and whether we did really win the Ashes after all?

As always, cheers to Budgy Smuggler for their ongoing support of the cast.
