Good, but...

Excellent content from intelligent hosts and contributors. Only drawback are some truly, horrible production values - sounds like they record remote comnentary off the speaker on their mobiles.

Love the pod, small suggestion.

This is one of my 3 favorite cricket podcasts. Very insightful, like the random bits of info, good fun overall. One small suggestion is that you could devote a couple of minutes each podcast or perhaps every other podcast providing some explanations for us that are new-ish to the game. Cricket is a game that has such a steep learning curve, and beautifully odd terminology, that I think this would help to grow the fan base for the game, particularly here in the US. Specially useful would be information on the state of the pitch, and why it matters, as well as bowling lengths and lines. For instance, a mini-lesson on the state of the pitch could have been sneaked in during the discussion of whether Australia should have batted first on the first day of the fifth test at the Oval. Obviously you don’t want to spend too much time and bore the knowledgeable listeners, but just a couple of minutes would do.

Very middling

They discuss arcane and esoteric topics in a very typical British fashion where insults are couched as self deprecation
