Each to their own but I don't go in for all the Gazza BS.  Had a couple of memorable moments but hardly an outstanding career.  Lazio wasn't a success while rangers was but that's nothing to shout about.
As for his current state, I find him hard to look at.  An undoubted talent but the brits get a bit carried away with him.

I listen to podcasts day in day out whilst in the car.

99% sports.

The Football Pod, Gaa Social, This is football, Comhra Le Tomas, GaaGo - Ratified, Mentality monsters etc.

Anyone recommend any good 'non-sports' podcasts as there aren't enough sports ones in the week to keep me going when driving? Or anything different to the above.

Two Johnnies. Not everyones cup of tea but light hearted stuff that you'll get a laugh from. The overlap and stick to football are decent sports ones you didnt mention. Never actually listened to it but diary of a ceo has had some good reviews.

Brolly, depending on the topic and if he's your cup of tea. I enjoyed the Mythstories series with Shane Todd and Ciaran Bartlett, but I could also see how these two would be a struggle for some people. I found them funny, but dont be expecting huge historical accuracy.

A podcast called Bear and Scully has come up on my feeds a few time as Ireland's #1 Podcast. I clicked on a link there and it opened up a YouTube video of a live show. At first glance it looks like it's *really* not my cup of tea. Any takers here for it?

Had a look and it probably appeals to Sunday World readers and people who watched Jeremy Kyle

An absolute balloon. More interested in talking about himself

Listen to "The Rest is History". Some episodes hit some miss but overall they're fairly good. There's a pleasant mix of light-hearted episodes with a few more emotional ones. Too many podcasts either fall into the "banter merchants" stereotype of the 2 johnnies or outright preaching of a David mc Williams. Once you get past the accents and Oxbridge education of the hosts it's grand.

Why would you need to "get past" the Oxbridge education of some historians?

you don't tend to go to those places without being a upper class English p***k?

Thousands upon thousands of people who don't fulfil that criteria go to Oxbridge every single year.

Some of the true crime stuff on the BBC are a good listen.

Sports Strangest crimes too.

Not sure if mentioned but Lee Keegan has a podcast called the square ball. Haven't listened but see Paudie Maher is guest for episode 4.
