Advertising the cancer that is B365? Goodbye. Planet FPL pod highly recommended

New editing means charm is lost

Agree with another reviewer, removing the pauses changes this completely - way to heroic sounding now. Used to love the slow and considered pace of this podcast.

Don’t cut the pauses out of the podcast

Mark - please put your natural pauses back into the podcast. I’m guessing you have a new editor at Athletic but cutting the pauses out of your speech after every sentence ruins the pace of the pod. Today’s pod is like listening to an fplgeneral on speed. The pod is not a race, you are sharing a lot of info with us, so let’s take our time and slow down, it’s better I promise. No need for the hatchet editing. Love the pod by the way and congratulations on signing with the folks at Athletic. Good luck with double game week 24.
