WELCOME to ‘Yeah, Good Chat’, hosted by Jess Good ('Goodie').
Host Jess Good unearths the stories of our AFLW program: what makes the players tick, what it takes to be an athlete and what goes on off the track. With a weekly guest, Goodie will bring the identity of the 'W' program to light in a pre-season typified by hard work and seizing the opportunity in front of both the individuals and the team.
Our first guest is none other than the podcast-experienced media talent Darcy Vescio, with 'Darce' once again reminding us how entertaining they are behind the mic.
Chatting about pre-season training, Darce’s love for mud and sardines as well as the relatable issues associated with procrastination, this episode gives a strong start to the ‘Yeah, Good Chat’ franchise.
