    S2 06 | We owe Steve Smith an apology

    Last episode Felicity offered various comedy ways to get Steve Smith out. One of them was to try and hurt him.

    Jofra Archer clearly listens to the podcast and took this advice seriously.

    We can only apologise by offering Nish Kumar, more Ashes sketches and a preview of the Leeds Test.

An Australian, a New Zealander, and an Englishman…

walk into a cricket comedy podcast. Currently pointing out the ludicrous of the 2019 World Cup. I can’t wait for the Ashes.

Everything you ever wanted but didn’t know you actually did

Cricket as it should be - funny, insightful, irreverent and full of meaningful and meaningless stats. Please do this every summer and winter! Ie. just do it all the time.

Finally a podcast treating cricket with the gravitas it deserves

Cricket is full of bull$€&t, it’s so nice to have some of the less sanctimonious but no less informative variety.
For those unfamiliar with his work, the comedic leanings of the least smurfy Bugler is an acquired taste. But it is well worth persevering through the initial pungent onslaught to get to the chewy nuggets of chuckle. I’m a long time listener, and this is some classic zalts. LOVING the co-hosts, can’t wait to hear more!
