The End ?

It’s been a while since the last episode, is this the end of the Thistle ? . Would be a real shame . Come back lads, Scottish rugby needs you ! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Nothing budget about this Pod

Much better than that other one IMO.

The Boiler Room ,

Top work!

Regular listener, regularly experiencing crushed hopes supporting Scottish Rugby. Listening to the three of you suffering somehow eases the burden for me, so, cheers for diving on the grenade. Keen to hear your thoughts on the Lions series now it’s over and Finn is now a “test animal...”. Keep up the good work guys!
