Great show, just what this sport needs to run alongside the excellent Athletics Weekly coverage, look forward to the series
Great content, flat delivery
The presenters need a bit more emotion - like the ITV tour de France podcast. All sounds like it's being read from a script. Great content though.
It's a decent show, both guys know their stuff an all, nicely presented too.
My only problem is how patronising some of the stories are narrated, I do sometimes, feel like I'm being talked down to or that I don't know what they mean, feels dumbed down at times.
Would like I have more interviews or listener interaction included in future.
