Great insight

Engaging and interesting and more importantly honest hosts.
Darragh does give true insight and Phil manages the process well as a questioner and a foil.
Particularly interesting on a personal level being a Bradford Fan in Peterborough.
The private paid business podcast and group is also worth a look too
