The Ploy Rebooted: Rove McManus

This is the first of a series of special episodes, in which we air a classic interview Mike conducted on The Ploy in the last 8 years of the show. The inaugural episode is one Mr. Rove McManus.

Rove spoke to Mike in 2009, coincidentally on our 100th episode, when celebrating the 10th anniversary of his hit television show ‘Rove’. It aired from 1999-2009, and just after this interview was conducted, Rove ended his show at the end of the 10 year run. Nowadays he lives in the U.S. with his wife and new baby, with regular trips back to Australia.

Future rebooted episodes will follow, and we will have fresh episodes coming very soon with exciting new guests, but for now, here is Mr. McManus!
