The Ashes Episode 1: The World Cup is Not Enough

The Ashes Episode 1: The World Cup is Not Enough

August 13, 2019

After a slight breather to recover from the World Cup Final, Steve, Dave and Oli assemble once again to take on The Ashes (well, talking about it at least).

Recorded shortly after the conclusion of the first test, we weren't the most confident in England's chances of regaining the urn. Instruction from the sound gimp was to consider 'the positives for England - so that the analysis is not too depressing' - there is a chance we failed to fulfil the brief.

Episode 15: Steve, hey? Shoe needs him

Episode 15: Steve, hey? Shoe needs him

April 26, 2019

Oli, Dave, and for at least some of the episode Steve, gather round the microphones to discuss the goings on in the world of cricket.

Top of the agenda is the recently published world cup squad picks, particularly the omission of Jofra Archer from the England squad. Also, will Warner and Smith be welcomed back into the Australian dressing room with open arms? And are the Indian squad past their prime?

We also talk about the IPL and casually dismiss the start of the County Cricket season.

Along with our usual compliment of quizzes and trivia, Oli comes up with an inspired shoe size quiz.
