Enjoyable but poor audio

I really like the podcast but please sort out the sound!

Excellent sports journalism

My equal favourite cricket podcast (alongside the Analyst Inside Cricket). Always new discussion points and fresh perspectives. Butch is always extra insightful.

Used to be the market leader, but outdone week after week by the Wisden guys these days. Butch and Dobell can still deliver, but Miller hasn’t made a coherent point in years....
