Best cricket show out there

This is the place to come for the most insightful, charismatic and intelligent chat about all things cricket (and more). Much as I like Tuffers and Vaughan this podcast leaves that show for dead in terms of proper analysis and real journalism and that has been put into even sharper relief during lockdown where T&V have struggled to find ways to fill the void while the two Simons seem to have totally risen to the occasion. Thorougly recommended listening.

Really insightful and enjoyable

I’ve really grown to enjoy this podcast. The two Simons are sharp readers of and thinkers about cricket, and always worth listening to. I’ve especially enjoyed the material they’ve produced during the Covid locdown; some great episodes and interviews in the Groundbreaking Moments series. Well worth subscribing to.

Very enjoyable

Fun podcast, really enjoying the current series: things that have changed cricket in the last 50 years.
Possible improvements: sound quality of especially interviews isn’t always great, theme music is awful(!)
But just minor gripes- good job Simons. :).
