Great host

I really like this podcast, Max Rushden is terrific

“When I was 19…”

Age has nothing to do with how humanity views (and quite correctly so) you, Barry. Your status is genetic, fueled by your own arrogance, and eternal.

Patrick McToal ,

Best football podcast

Funny and insightful football chat that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Don’t take heed of other reviews that talk of “woke-ness”. Unless you’re the type of person who flys into a fit of rage at the mention of racism, you should be fine. Keep it up lads 👍🏻
