Learn Australian English by listening to this episode of The Goss! These are conversations with my old man Ian Smissen for you to learn more about Australian culture, news, and current affairs.


In this episode, we talk about the hard physical contact sport that is Australian football - or footy!


This is the kind of sport that, if things go really wrong on any given moment, will give you CTE.


CTE stands for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a fatal brain disease found common in footy players.


You can check out Will Smith's movie Concussion, it's about the chilling discovery of CTE.
