If you want to hear about the sporting adventures and times from Ian, this isn’t for you (or me) The interviewing style is more like we are listening in on a therapist session.

How hard is it in this day and age to attribute to right name to the right podcast? Go to listen to James Wade and god knows who it is instead. The ones I actually wanted to listen too are a fantastic insight, just shambolic organisation by whoever put the package together

Great show, very insightful
Love this, it’s so interesting listening to the issues these sportsmen and women face. My only complaint is you need to sort the downloads out. James Wade, Jason Cundy and one or two others are actually other people, so there’s something going wrong there.
