This season

I just noticed that a lot of people have been visiting the blog in the last few days.

I guess many are checking to see when the pod will start up again. If that is indeed the case, I am very flattered.

Sometimes I stupidly forget that not everyone who listens to the pod is on Twitter, where I have already talked about what may or may not happen with the pod this season.

As it stands, I don’t know what will be happening with the pod. All I can say right now is that there will be no pod until after the third Match Day of the season at the earliest.

Will tweet and post as soon as any decisions are taken.

Thanking y’all.
