Fun but still informative

I really like the pod, there’s a very good chemistry between everyone but the pod is still informative and insightful, and each of the has a specific way of looking at the game which makes it even better.

Mina/JJ Relationship

I love how Mina kind of mother’s JJ a bit. I like JJ allot. There’s a degree of innocence that borders on nativity with him that I think Mina recognizes even tho he really doesn’t and kind of protects him. I play guitar in a local band. Inevitably between sets when you’re grabbing a drink at the bar somebody will ask if they can sit in for a song. He generally ask him what he’d like to play, how long have you been playing etc. Basically you’re trying to determine whether or not this poor guy is gonna make a fool of himself. JJ is the type of dude that will ask to play a song and tell you straight up I’ve never actually played on a real one but I mastered guitar hero on PlayStation. A guy like that who’s dead serious when he asks and doesn’t recognize the danger or how that’s gonna look is somebody that a good person protects. Kudos to both of you, you’re both nice people

5-star. Favourite podcast. One comment though

Dear Tom with an H, re most recent episode, why does it matter if Mourinho throws his players under the bus? It’s always parked. Yours, BadoomTish. Aka Nick Bowman
