Witty and informative

Very good I really enjoy listening to this. I think Niall and James contrast in a way that really gives the show an edge. Good comedy from the pair

Wit and knowledge

This is quite simply the best cider testing podcast on the market today. Other podcasts just don't produce the same quality of reviews, despite the hosts not being experts.
