Only Gow could be this bad at pouring a pint

Maybe I am just getting better at picking the news stories.
Perhaps there is just more news to cover.
More likely that we start drinking before the recording starts now.

Whatever the reason these podcasts are getting longer each week. This weeks nearly broke the 2 hour mark.

For that reason we would like to hear from any of our listeners.

If you think there is anything we could do better, anything we should perhaps cut, even anything you think we should add – leave us a message in the comments.

Now without further blurb, here is this weeks podcast
