Very British

We made podcast that the hosts really prepare for. It is very British tho. Lots of Spectrum talk.

Andy's the best. I listen to this show in the early mornings while I'm driving to work. It's a point in time where I'm always grumpy & have a short fuse, but unlike many other hosts of lesser podcasts, Andy never p***es me off. The other guys are all pretty great as well. Fantastic show! The enthusiasm expressed is always infectious & brings me back to my own childhood memories of standing around in dark arcades & dusty market lobbies spending every quarter of my hard earned allowance. It was the best of times, it was the best of times.

Excellent Podcast
