I could listen the Scottish private school niche banter all day. Makes me so damn homesick but I love it!

Johnnie Beattie Interview

The best episode of the podcast yet. Such great insight from a former pro and was a great dynamic between the three of you. Definitely need more live guests in the future if possible.
Well done!
