sssssmiley ,

I truly don’t like sports…

… but I do love this podcast!

Donna, but all names are taken ,

I don't have a single spare thought for sports

For years i couldn't walk by a sporting event without getting hit by the ball, the feeling is mutual. This is the best show for someone like me. It's about the people who played the sports and a plethora of fun (heartbreaking or hilarious) facts about them and sport history. I can now carry on sport conversations without feeling woefully inept. Sports might not be for you but this show is.

Zeeeeeej ,

I like sports

more than I did, and it’s entirely due to this podcast. Love these guys.
