With week-long coverage, including game reactions, reports and specials, the Triple M Rocks Footy Podcast is where the footy fanatics come to talk, eat, and breathe everything AFL.
Offering a mix of humour and hard-hitting opinions, the show is both entertaining and informative. But be warned: the banter can really ramp up on this show, which means you’ll hear some colourful stories and jokes that aren’t necessarily football related!
9. SEN Breakfast
For in-depth AFL analysis from the top experts, SEN Breakfast is quality listening. Leading broadcasters Garry Lyon, Nathan Buckley, Tim Watson, Kane Cornes, and David King set the agenda each morning with their unparalleled football acumen.
Dissecting everything from coaching moves to player performances, these hosts draw on decades of experience at the game’s highest level and provide unmatched access through exclusive interviews with AFL newsmakers.
The great thing about this podcast is that it offers something for casual fans eager to learn and the diehard supporters craving deep insider takes.
8. AFL Daily
You’ve probably seen Damian Barrett on shows like Footy Classified and the Sunday Footy Show on the Nine Network.
In the AFL Daily Podcast, he is joined by rising star Nat Edwards as they dive into the biggest stories happening both on and off the field.
With Barrett’s extensive network of contacts and Edwards’ knack for lively discussion, the show breaks down need-to-know developments in an insightful and entertaining way.
From post-match analysis to previewing blockbuster matches, The AFL Daily is a great podcast to start your day.
Having played 259 games, and coached 377, it’s fair to say Rodney ‘Rocket’ Eade knows his stuff. And as one of the most opinionated (and arguably grumpy) figures in the game, he can be very entertaining.
In the weekly ‘Footyology’ podcast, Eade is joined by veteran journalist Rohan Connolly to provide listeners with interesting and entertaining insights and analysis. Their candid debates and differing opinions provide unique perspectives into players, coaches and clubs.
Regardless of who your support and you’re level of knowledge, ‘Footyology’ is a riveting exploration of the game’s nuances. It’s been going since mid-2017, so they must be doing something right!
6. The Game: AFL Podcast with Quarters & Barra
If you’re a country or suburban footballer, you probably train every Tuesday and Thursday night, which happens to be the same nights that Glen Quartermain and Adrian Barich post a new episode of their Podcast. So why not have a listen to and from the oval?
Called ‘The Game with Quarters and Barra’, the show delves into the biggest issues in the game and offers unique and insightful commentary on the latest player and coaching moves.
With their deep knowledge and infectious enthusiasm, the hosts make every episode a winner.
5. The AFL SuperCoach Podcast
Ok, this one isn’t going to be for everyone. The AFL SuperCoach Podcast is for those into fantasy footy, so if you don’t involve yourself in that, then read on to the next show!
But, if you do like to take on your mates in AFL SuperCoach, this podcast is a valuable source of strategies, perspectives and advice aimed at enhancing your performance.
Even-if you’re a SuperCoach veteran, there is a good chance you’ll pick up some tips that will help you come out on top!

Hosted by the hilarious duo of Adam Rozenbachs and Michael Chamberlin, the show offers plenty of laughs. While their combined AFL game tally might be zero, their passion for dissecting Australia’s beloved winter sport knows no bounds.

These shows allow you to delve into the heart of the game with expert analysis and insider insights that are hard to find anywhere else.
2. AFL Nation
The AFL Nation podcast delivers content from the SEN radio station, which is owned by Craig Hutchinson’s ‘Sports Entertainment Network’ (formerly ‘Crocmedia’).
There is a lot of content posted on this channel, which mainly comes from game day coverage and interviews. For example, you can listen to pre-game and half-time shows, as well as post-game chats with players.
That means AFL nation can be a great source if you’ve missed anything over the weekend!
For the die-hard, nerdy football fans out there, the ‘Gettable’ podcast is a ripper.
AFL experts Cal Twomey and Riley Beveridge, deliver up-to-the-minute news and analysis on trades, free agency, and the draft.
With unparalleled access to clubs, managers, and the decision-makers shaping lists, Twomey and Beveridge provide insider perspectives on both completed deals and rumours brewing.
Timely player profiles and post-move breakdowns help listeners understand the complex personal and strategic factors at play.
For footy fans obsessed with list changes and club building strategy, Gettable offers an essential offseason companion.
The AFL’s ‘Trade Radio’ could easily have made this list, but has been left out as it’s only on-air during the AFL’s annual player exchange period.
Launched in 2016 and anchored from Marvel Stadium, the show has become essentially listening for fans wanting coverage as clubs wheel and deal. Current players, coaches, and journalists also join the program to share insights and reactions.
