Never dull

Never a dull episode - been an avid listener for 3 years: yet to find something to complain about.

My go-to when ever I feel I need to know something

I listen to these guys every week, and can’t get enough. They have set a high standard of uncovering and sharing incredible backstories and insight to topics I never thought I would enjoy so much.
