A tonic

Short and sweet. Warm and silly, but honest. Educational, kinda. I hope Jake and Natt realise that they are now committed to producing a daily podcast FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES. I am relying on it.

MinimumBob ,

Two nuggets of history lovingly dipped in the deep fat fryer of history.

Great fun listening to Jake pretending not to care about losing each week. Presumably this is some sort of long term psychological experiment on the effects of inadequacy on the human psyche.

Ditch the ladies

Really chaps, you’re so so much better and funnier on your own. Really.
