Already being described as "the worst way to spend a long commute", the De Trout Spinners is a nostalgic dive into the hilarious, chaotic and oddly sweet world of the 2001-2005 Xfm Ricky Gervais Show. Join Miles and Gary as they take a retrospective look through the Xfm RSK archive, breaking down each episode chronologically each week, in wistful, loving and (they hope - wrongly) humorous episodes.
