Pinky951 ,

Really enjoying it now.

I used to get a bit distracted while listening as I was trying to decide which of the guys was the biggest goose. Then Warnie took over the scale of hardness and added extra colours, now that I know it is him I am able to focus fully on the show. Very funny and informative, more of a catalyst for thought then an instructional podcast. Keep up the good work legends, will be listening from over here in the UK
