Not About Cricket!
Brilliant show which will make you want to binge listen the whole back catalogue.
Wonderfully chosen guests with easy chit chat flowing throughout.
Great banter and quirky chats!
Brilliant fun, like eavesdropping a super interesting, random conversation down the pub!
A YouTube safari in every episode...
We all use podcasts in different ways. I like to listen while working, at home, on my laptop; headphones on!
The podcast entertains me with the banter between guests, it educates me with it's interesting material, it amuses me with the host's implimentation of the 'rules' sometimes and I get sent off on a YouTube Safari (Thanks, Pete, for putting a name on it), looking up the songs that I don't know, the clip references etc
A fabulously entertaining hour and I look forward to more to come. Well done, Pop Cricket, we're playing along with you at home too, with the early release of each week's songs for scoring!
