A must listen if you’re fan of these guys YouTube channels

Two episodes in and really enjoying the podcast.

DrummerOfDarkness ,

Nailing it

Could listen to Peter and Andy all day, best podcast find in a long time, such a shame it’s come to an end. Would love to see it make a return!

Abyshep ,

Love this show!

Arrived late to the party. Although I follow both Andy and Peter on YouTube I’d not dipped into the podcast until now and I realise what I’ve been missing. It’s the perfect accompaniment to stripping wall paper and old paint!
