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!

The Ploy 109: Up Late

This episode contains some coarse language. Discretion is advised.

This week we have a corker of a show with special guest co-host Chris Fitzpatrick from his eponymous online radio show filling in for Mike who continues his extended break.

This week we cover the Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno shuffle, what a mess. Everyone has a view on this. We learn about Chris’ show and reminisce about old times, Paul has a story about previous guest Chantelle Barry, we cover the alleged racist KFC advertisement and our regular segments return.

Also this week, we premiere our new opening theme for season five. Enjoy!
