Everything you ever wanted but didn’t know you actually did
Cricket as it should be - funny, insightful, irreverent and full of meaningful and meaningless stats. Please do this every summer and winter! Ie. just do it all the time.
Finally a podcast treating cricket with the gravitas it deserves
Cricket is full of bull$€&t, it’s so nice to have some of the less sanctimonious but no less informative variety.
For those unfamiliar with his work, the comedic leanings of the least smurfy Bugler is an acquired taste. But it is well worth persevering through the initial pungent onslaught to get to the chewy nuggets of chuckle. I’m a long time listener, and this is some classic zalts. LOVING the co-hosts, can’t wait to hear more!
Hitting all the right areas
Superb mix of facts and satire with eloquence and intelligence from both Ward and Zaltzman. This will be the saving grace of the Australian summer if our batting line-up collapses with its usual flawed approach – the product of players too focussed on the short versions of the game
