Bug/fault ,

Viva Wayne

My all-time favourite podcast, it never fails to lift my mood. I really hope Wayne brings it back post Seventh Son. Iron Blood, Maiden Heart.

Don McIntyre ,

Unlike Anything Else You've Heard

A totally unique take on growing up with Iron Maiden in which Wayne combines a critique of the band's songs and many other things including 1980s chocolate biscuits with the odd Fray Bentos pie along the way. The highly individual and at times puzzling poetry of his friend Trevor together with their sometimes differing childhood memories add further interest. Warning - listen from the first episode. There are constant back references.

My Favourite Podcast.

Wayne's Iron Maiden Podcast
Is one that I nearly bypassed
But I gave it a try
And to my great surprise
It shows insight, great music and big laughs.
