Story Time! Many and varied they are today. Adam can't stop talking about George Headley. Geoff believes that at last, at last, he has caught up to a long-elusive quarry. What does US political analyst Nate Silver have to do with Mahendra Singh Dhoni? Why are we talking about Lionel Richie and a former host of Getaway? Who was the last player to join an exclusive club, and who was the fastest to join another one? Who inspired more love, The Freak or The Rug? And is that actually Daniel Norcross on the CBUS ad?
Plus we reboot our interview from last year with Matthew Renshaw about his rollercoaster career so far, and how he's tried to keep a handle on it at what is still a tender age.
