Angela Pippos

Angela Pippos is a journalist, TV and radio presenter, columnist and author of The Goddess Advantage – One Year in the Life of a Football Worshipper. It’s as much about love, loyalty, stuffed tomatoes and Greek mythology as it is about Australian rules football.

Angela is a lively and engaging MC and guest speaker. Whether it’s sport, food and wine, feminism, politics, multiculturalism, books or fashion, Angela is always on top of her game. She researches meticulously and then adds her trademark spontaneity and va va voom. Angela also MC’s for the Collingwood Football Club on game day but don’t hold that against her. She says nothing yet tops the Victorian Sausage King Awards for sheer surprise value.


  • From politics to sport

  • Importance of humour
  • Surviving the blokey world of sport


Angela was absolutely fantastic; I thought it was an exceptional event, really interesting to hear her perspective of the challenges of her male-dominated industry and how there were many parallels with some of the experiences that women at MMRA have had, even though on the surface, our industries are very different. The Q&A session at the end was a big highlight.
