Published author and historian Erik Nielsen raises the braininess of the pod this week. The lack of Big Zacko means Swainy goes uninterrupted discussing the troubles at the ARU and we devise a ploy to get him to the Rugby World Cup in 2019. Erik enlightens us to the Australian Society for Sports History Conference and the 19th annual Tom Brock Lecture featuring Raelene Castle.
