The hiatus is over and the host returns with an interview featuring his new favorite radio show host. Yes, it's a radio show, not a podcast, but you don't have to dust off the old boom box to dial up the correct FM frequency, of course. You'll learn more than you ever imagined about the music of yesteryear, and how to hear it, during our interview …
 
The host has been following a Minneapolis-based photographer for about a year. In this episode of the podcast, he learns about the inspiration, methods and process involved in capturing her distinct, memorable images. And he does so without ever asking about the photography equipment she employs. Following the interview, the host finally explains w…
 
Founded in 1864 and resident at Lords since 1877, we are going to focus here on Middlesex. 11 times County Champions, the club has a proud history of developing many of the game’s greatest known cricketers, including the likes of Denis Compton, Mike Gatting, John Emburey and Andrew Strauss to name but a few and this tradition continues to the moder…
 
Who is the oldest of our First-Class Counties? Surrey? Middlesex? Lancashire? Yorkshire? It’s none of those. Founded in 1839, it is Sussex. Three times county County Champions, their illustrious history boasts the likes of CB Fry, David Shepherd, Ted Dexter, Tony Greig, Ranjitsinghi, Maurice Tate and John Snow. Now, they are promoting some young an…
 
Leicestershire CEO @SeanMJarvis is a man on a mission to grow not just the size, but also the range and diversity of the County’s membership and fan base. Leicestershire are a proud county. 3 times county champions, 3 times T20 champions and 3 times Benson and Hedges Cup Winners. Yet when England get battered in a Test Series, there are those who p…
 
Season 6 of the podcast begins with a deep dive into that failed 1980s sitcom the host never forgot, and talked about in episode 68. The host isn't the only person who remembers the show fondly, the foremost authority on the show joins the podcast to discuss the sometimes-brilliant sitcom known as "It's Your Move." That discussion follows the first…
 
Botham, Richards, Garner, Trescothik, Caddick, Gimlett, White, Bess, Leach, Rogers, Close, Gayle, Azam. Just a few names that have graced the County Ground in Taunton and home of Somerset. They have a beautiful ground in the South West of England and a reputation since 1875 for playing a dashing and exciting brand of cricket. Certainly, well before…
 
It's the season finale, really. Unless it's not. It's time to move forward with season 6, but not before a brief visit with our buddy Izzy Presley, who surprised the host with a recent Twitter revelation. But first, the host gets overly excited about a TV show you've never heard of, and spends too much time telling you about a chance encounter in L…
 
There are huge challenges in our national game at the moment. Test results have been poor and the very structure of our UK domestic game is under scrutiny from the grass roots upwards. In this environment of question and concern, our counties need to be making the game as accessible, attractive and effective as they can. The Cricket Supporters Asso…
 
Inside the Tour - The Ashes 1986/87 is the definitive story of an extraordinary tour, featuring many of those who were part of it, including tales of rum, wine, fancy dress and Elton John. Gladstone Small may not have played in the first three tests, but he certainly made an impact at the MCG, taking seven Australian wickets to help win the Ashes f…
 
Inside the Tour - The Ashes 1986/87 is the definitive story of an extraordinary tour, featuring many of those who were part of it, including tales of rum, wine, fancy dress and Elton John. There were certainly some larger-than-life personalities on both sides including Sir Ian Botham, Alan Lamb and David Gower to name but three for England. Chris B…
 
Never mind the cricket. Who will win the Jingle Ashes? Who has the funniest, rudest, longest, shortest, daftest, most hummable earworm of a Guerilla Jingle? Two teams of Guerillas, one from Australia and one from England, got together for the ultimate pre - series Jingle off. Along the way they also found time to opine on the real cricket coming up…

They collect and source clothing and equipment, both new and high-quality second hand, and then dispatch it to schools, clubs and academies not just in the UK, but all around the world. To help, you can donate your unused or second-hand cricket clothing and equipment via…
 
The podcast has had a longstanding invitation to take the show on the road, specifically to Bloomington, Minnesota, for a comic book show. As a podcast that has occasionally called upon the world of comic books for source material, it seemed like a logical destination. Don't read comic books? It shouldn't matter. We talked about things even we didn…
 
The Las Vegas version of Strange Days Indeed introduces us to characters whose peculiar actions leave the host wondering what the story was behind those moments when strangers crossed paths. The host's interactions, direct and indirect, raise questions that may never be answered, and most likely will not be forgotten.…
 
Never has it been more important to ensure the views of cricket fans are heard as we see a county system under financial pressure, the impact of the pandemic and the launch of new and not universally accepted format of the game with the Hundred. Over 3000 cricket fans, across all age ranges, responded to the 5th Annual Cricket Supporters Associatio…
 
If you want to give a youngster a beautifully illustrated, easy to understand book to get them enthused about cricket, what choices are there? If you google ’my first cricket book’ you will find out two things. Firstly, there aren’t that many options and secondly, they don’t come cheap! Our game doesn’t always do a great job of igniting the enthusi…
 
Here comes another story the host is surprised he hadn't heard until recently. Elmer Sherwin won a lot of money in 1989, but that's not what makes his story so fascinating. His story, and an unrelated tale of woe, follow an addendum to episode 57, and the story of another of the host's once-lost friends. But wait, there's more! You get all the afor…
