Ep. 8 - Getting Equal: The power of Australia failing to take the field against USA | How the Matildas' plight reflected a societal gap

Matildas greats Kate Gill and Tal Karp plus current star Tameka Yallop, along with esteemed writer and academic Fiona Crawford, join John Didulica and David Davutovic for a strong-hearted discussion about the gulf that was (partially) bridged after a brave move by a group of Aussie football players.

In this episode:

  • The match between USA v Australia in Detroit, Michigan in September 2015, and why the Matildas didn't play
  • The power of unity and solidarity in trying to break down disparity
  • Equality in sport, how it has changed, and what still remains to be done
