Interviews

Since 2000, Rhett Bartlett has been conducting interviews with former players and officials of the Richmond Football Club.
Those interviews formed the text of the 2008 publication 'Richmond FC:  A Century of League Football'  (and its subsequent 2012 updated version 'Richmond FC:  A Proud History of a Great Club', and its 2019 release)

These interviews are now being digitised and placed online for football and Richmond supporters to hear about the history of the club.  In many cases, these interviews were the last ever for the former players.  

There are two options to listen to the interviews

1. Click on each interview link below, or

2.  Subscribe/download the free ROAR iTunes podcast, or just search 'Roar Podcast' in whatever program you listen to your podcasts on.
