  • 13. On The Bob Foot - The James Wynne Wine Win Method, Racing Tips with Andy Blackett, Munching On The Moors, Haggising and Learning Cumbrian

    Some critics have claimed that I impersonate top mountain runner's talking to me on my podcast! First of all I wouldn't do such a silly thing. Secondly I don't actually have the talent. All the guests featured on this episode took time out of their busy days to send me well rehearsed voice notes that probably took them hours to rehearse. The fact anyone would suggest some of them are phony is frankly insulting and if accusers want to listen to 'On The Back Foot' then I think they should be donating money to Jacob Tonkin's Benidorm trip!
