Ok when they talk about Manics. Extended off-topic chat is boring and the jokes are even worse. Not really really awful because Manics bits are not bad.

awful

I've been a big fan of the MSP since a child and would listen with my dad. Was very excited for an interesting or entertaining MSP podcast. This isn't it.

Complete waste of time

Seemed like a good opportunity, as late to the game there was still space for a fan-focused podcast. This is what this claims to be, but the first episode doesn't have any fan content, the second episode is about a different band, the thid episode is in the same format of the other podcast about manics. The main problem is that it is really boring though. There isn't any interesting information, there isnt any passion, its not really about fans, and it isnt funny. Means that its just nothing. Its just a waste of time.
