  • Really good stuff this.

    Tales of scandal, drunkenness and general chaos from the sporting world. It’s very laddish, lighthearted and thus far, unspoiled by wokeness. They sound like they’re having a lot of fun making this and that carries over really well. Great accompaniment for the email newsletter of the same name.

  • Hilarious podcast

    Well-researched, funny, irreverent - it’ll do for me, Clive. Also, glad it’s not made by a bunch of celebs.
