Great Podcast!

Funny, insightful, just brilliant and so entertaining!

A great listen

An excellent , funny but very informative podcast. Some very good interviews and other insights into the game by two cricket loving presenters - one a comedian who clearly understands the game the other a current international cricket star who , despite the stereotype ‘clown’ image , is a deep thinker and provides important insight into the modern game at the professional level .

Good Geordie lad and chum

Really enjoyed this. Some excellent guests and some very funny stories. Mark Wood’s a good Geordie lad and I like him as another of Ashington’s finest might have said.
