McGrath is terrible.

Used to really enjoy the podcast until McGrath outed himself as a west Brit, Fine Gael supporting partionist on Twitter. Hopefully Petesy gets a new gig soon, he seems civil and puts out great content.

Ok

Spend more time talking bout how great the media are than anything else maybe they don’t realise fighting is all about the fighters
