Great way to get into curling
This podcast is fun. I’m new to getting into this sport and you don’t have to be an expert to follow. Clearly has plenty for the hardcore fans too, but a very easy way to get into this area. Highly recommend for anyone interested.
It’s great to listen to a novice perspective on curling.
