Hilariously good fun

Not sure why it has taken me so long to write a review. I can only say that I completely forgot which I am remedying now. This is one of my favourite podcasts. Hilariously funny, full of insightful information and interviews and you never know when you are going to burst into laughter. The live versions are not to be missed. Excellent comic timing between Steve and Luca. Don't miss this!
