This is a sum way more than its individual parts. It’s more than football and more than music. I enjoy hearing Dotun and Tim outside of BBC mode where they can talk more freely. Whatever match/era they choose to discuss I learn so much about footie, music, culture and all the intangibles that tie it all together.
I’ve been needing this
So glad to hear your familiar voices. It’s been too long. Listened to both episodes of the new podcast and love the content. Keep them coming!
Learn more about football, music, and life listening to Tim and Dotun than anywhere else. It doesn’t get better. In times when respectful and honest conversation is in short supply this podcast gives me hope.
