Almost Perfect

Great podcast!! Although it is difficult to hear sometimes, especially on public transport and even when volume is maxed out. 5 stars if you fix this!

Annabelle rose bridge ,

Awesome

Love the podcast, keep up the good work!!!

Castlemaine Gus ,

Good

Generally very good podcast , great 👍 interviews and post match coverage and Sam is a good guy . However today it was not possible to hear Ricky Ponting interview because of a poor phone line .... Ponting gives a great analysis of the game so it was frustrating but really a very small blip in an otherwise excellent podcast ... May it continue for many years to come .
