Old fan in new location

Well, Damian Flatlin & Tim Shankman have certainly continued their hilarious high-jinks tails of their day-to-day, humdrum, lives and even manage to squeeze in a spot of rugby chat, too.

Their insatiable thirst for rugby knowledge, banter and tall-tails is only surpassed by their never-ending search for free stuff, or swag as it is often called.

Keep up the good work, chaps, and one day you may even get a bit of TV work.

A brand new fan

As a 60 year old librarian from St Louis, I am probably NOT the demographic that Dai and Tom are looking for, but you gotta take your fans where you can find them, right? I stumbled onto this podcast while looking for some help in learning about rugby, and it has now become my favorite thing to listen to during the day. The boys are definitely "brothers from different mothers", and I am actually learning a bunch about the game in between crying with laughter at their stories. Thanks, guys!
