Absolutely Brilliant!!

I found this show about a year ago and have been hooked ever since. It is funny, informative and the guys have a great rapport which comes across in every episode. I have since joined the Discord group and love that as well. Keep it up guys. I have recently been very ill and your show has gotten me through a tough time so a real genuine thank you to all of you.
