Manchester! ,

Thank you!

Started off cherry-picking the trumpet episodes as that’s what I thought I wanted to hear but now begrudgingly realising that mostly the non-trumpeters are more interesting and funnier, which is crucial when going out on socially distant runs. Get involved! Oh and get some Brits on!

Bosco Babcock ,

Insightful and funny!

Andrew and Lance produce an incredibly well thought out and impeccably delivered show. It’s both informative and insightful, whilst being relaxed and unstuffy, bravo!
