You need to make a compilation of Goodes soundy likey of Owen Farrel. Hilarious and approaching real comedy. Please do

More Jim, less Goode

A good podcast and Jim is excellent. Might often sound like he’s speaking nonsense but his analysis is always worth listening to. Andy Goode is believing his own self-hype and adds nothing to the show. Jim and Cavey going forward would improve the show.

Worth a listen

I like this pod and listen regularly.
Darren Cave is an interesting addition but I don’t know why he feels the need to use such bad language.
He needs to cut it out.
