Love the Simons' views & analysis

Especially after a day's play. And they have some great guests/discussion. I buy the Cricketer magazine too (although this is easier to digest/keep on top of) although never get through it on a timely basis, but it seems a fair quid pro quo.

If I had one complaint, it would be that sometimes the audio levels vary between contributors, so one has to keep physically turning the volume up and down whilst listening.

Not as good as it once was

I’m getting the feeling that SH is now coasting along on this show (off the back of SM). Not a lot of analysis. Hardly anything on the county game. Selling NFTs. The use of the word ‘actually’ in every sentence. The Wisden cricket podcast is much better at the moment. At least there’s some analysis on that.
