Solid content; don’t try so hard to be funny

A useful podcast with informative content and knowledgeable guests. Emma John has terrific enthusiasm, I just wish she would stop trying so hard to be funny.

Brilliant podcast, irritating host

Very funny at times, great guests. Emma John is deeply, deeply annoying. Would be five stars, if not for her ability to be banal and irksome.

Good apart from jingle

The jingle is possibly the worst thing I've ever heard. That aside, glad this weekly email has become a podcast, hope this continues frequently outside of the ashes and even outside of cricket being played. Good stuff. Get rid of jingle.

Sorry

Had to turn this off after I heard someone commenting on Steve Smith being the fourth Aussie to ‘do’ back to back centuries. You make centuries, you don’t ‘do’ them. It wasn’t the first time a host showed their complete lack of familiarity with the game in the first 12 minutes of the pod.. If you’re gonna have a cricket podcast then please put ppl on who know the game, cheers.

Wild Review

Need to find USP. You’re not Tailenders and your not TMS. You can sit happily between. Use Guardian Football Pcast as blueprint for success. More acknowledgment of radio coverage rather than Sky would be good too - Previous episode analysing commentators ignored great TMS commentary which surpasses anything in TV.

Good podcast but the jingle is awful

The jingle is dire. I’d prefer it to be more serious. At a World Cup you have plenty to analyse so ditch the irrelevant stuff. Non cricket people aren’t going to listen

Really enjoyable but awful theme music

Please bin the awful spin jingle. Despite this the show is informative and entertaining with a quirky look at the tournament
