I laughed a whole lot

Great hosts and concept, worth a ear kick-about

Brilliant Podcast

Great show that reviews obscure footballer autobiographies & keeps me laughing while i'm working from home. It's less Alfred Tennyson more Barry Venison.

It’s So Funny… Please rethink your sponsors

I have just binged 5 eps in one day. It’s so cheerful, interesting and funny…

Edit; disappointed by the betting advertisements. It’s an addiction that bankrupts people and ruins families. These companies prey upon vulnerable people for quick serotonin fixes. Please rethink your sponsors.
