  • I think of all the things I've ever done, including enjoying excel, dungeons and dragons and accounts, listening to people talk about pretend football managers is probably the nerdiest. And I love it.

    Best fm podcast by far. Easy to understand even for non native speakers. Book club maybe too British for my liking, although who wouldn’t like to read what Lotina or David Vidal’s British counterparts have to say about their careers.
