bk ggggg ,

would be great if it was about parkrun

Any time i’ve listened, about 50% of the show has been about things other than parkrun. Presented by someone who doesn’t seem to parkrun all that often.
The other presenter seems to be more interested in putting words in the interviewees mouth.
Could be great if a few remedial issues were addressed.
