In this episode we speak to former AFL premiership captain, dual-Brownlow medalist and 6x All-Australian – Chris Judd. Most Australians will known Chris for his exploits on the football field, ending his career as an all-time legend. Fewer Australians will know Chris for his career post-football. That is what we get into in this conversation.
