Rick finding his feet

Brilliant episode on 28/10, Rick has taken control and is very funny. Letting the guests breathe and has stopped them talking over each other.

Once great show gone bad

With Colin Murray this was great. Rick is not funny and he isn’t even doing it live. Too many dull guests do not help but overall it is time to put this show out of its misery unless they change the host

Rick Edwards 🤦‍♀️

I have always listened to this podcast and never missed an episode. However since Colin left it has been hard going. Rick Edwards just can’t cut it. His inane chatter and lack of sporting knowledge really brings the show down. The banter between panellists is the only thing that keeps me listening. I have even contemplated deleting it. Find a decent host to save this show please.
