New podcast celebrates winners, losers and all the weird stuff in between


Take a trip through sporting history with some of the most extraordinary, untold tales from around the world in the new podcast, The Pool Room with Tony Armstrong.

It’s a podcast for anyone who loves a great true tale and celebrates the winners, losers and all the weird stuff in between.

Tony dives into everything from Australia’s rich history with streakers, to the Olympic marathon runner who mysteriously disappeared mid-race and the curse that haunted Australian soccer for decades.

The Pool Room with Tony Armstrong, is for diehard sports fan and anyone else who just loves a great yarn.

Tony says “The Pool Room is teeming with the sorts of tales I want to settle down at the pub for and have my mates entertain me with. Sometimes what happened truly is so much more bizarre, hilarious and fascinating than anything we could make up. The stories we treat listeners to on The Pool Room don’t disappoint.”

ARN’s Podcast Content Director Stephanie Coombes says “Tony Armstrong is a wonderful storyteller and sporting tragic, so there’s no one better placed to bring the incredible stories for The Pool Room to life. His tales are compelling and a pleasure to listen to.”

Tony Armstrong last year took out the Graham Kennedy Award for best new talent at the TV WEEK Logie Awards and is one on the most in-demand broadcasters in the country right now. Tony is the sports presenter on ABC News Breakfast and regularly appears on The Weekly with Charlie Pickering.

The Pool Room with Tony Armstrong is available now on ARN’s iHeartPodcast Network Australia and wherever you listen to your podcasts.
