Max and Barry
There is just something soothing to listen to the contrasting personalities of Max and Barry. They are the Odd Couple of football podcasts and their enduring relationship (or lack thereof) during troubled times is something to make you smile when everything around is such a stench.
Just a good listen.
Like a favorite jacket. Comfortable and relaxing. Great characters and I like how they are expanding their line up. Live shows in the US please.
Not fit for purpose
That’s the British phrase right? If you want fairly uninformed opinions that often miss the point then the is is the pod for you!
