Podcast: Damien Hirst, swimming certificates, signed footballs and the Cocteau Twins – all in service behind the talking heads. Robin and Sean examine the decor. Contains background information.
The betting podcast: It’s that time of year. The Cheltenham Festival, the biggest punting week in the world. Should you wear a face mask? Is an ante-post bet a good idea? Is any bet a good idea? Robin and Sean search for answers. Contains salutary lessons.
Podcast: It’s the BRITs. Playground for the idiocracy, or stark reflection of our culture? And mainly should comedy genius Lewis Capaldi replace the failing Whitehall? Robin and Sean watch and learn. Contains diversity.
The betting podcast: You’ve got until April 14 to max out your credit card with the bookies – then it’s banned. But is it really so wrong? More pertinently, how are Tranmere doing in the FA Cup? Who will win the Super Bowl? Anything in the Aussie tennis? Robin and Sean dig in on the punting front.
Podcast: The heir heads are doing a bunk. Harry and Meghan, #SussexRoyal, want to have their swan cake and eat it – but are they doing it for the gram, or taking one for the firm? Robin and Sean surf the wave of media poison. Contains deference – as always!
The betting podcast: Always cash out? Or never cash out? Just talk about cashing out, instead of actually cashing out? What is Tranmere’s dilemma, and how rough is the road to the Super Bowl? Robin and Sean start the year as they mean to go on.

Podcast: It’s a jungle out there as MMR goes transatlantic with Sean and Ben in New York and Robin in Brexit Britain. Is there any escape? Are these celebs celeb enough for I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!? We explore the meaning of fear. And the Duke of York. It’s a blockbuster! Contains nuts.
Podcast: Life’s a gamble, but it’s one of the worst bets around. On all known form, you’re a certainty to lose big in the long run. In this new podcast from MMR, Sean and Robin cover the betting waterfront. Episode 1: Stewards’ enquiry on The Circle! Strictly! Scottish football! Racing! And more.
Podcast: Holed up in Salford with nowhere to go, the contestants on The Circle are in a social media dogfight to the death (figuratively speaking). And this year you can bet on it! Robin and Sean can’t have old boy Tim as the favourite. Contains aubergine.

What the hell was it all about? Revolution, evolution, or just swearing? Sean and Robin get ripped. Contains posh sofas.
Podcast: It’s Yesterday, it’s now, but the Beatles don’t exist. Neither do Oasis. But what about wit, humour and empathy? Can Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle fit them in? And who’s gonna live forever? Robin and Sean take the long and winding road to the dark heart of the long and winding romcom. Contains karaoke.
You can’t miss that stuff in the Times about the lawless streets of Britain. Apparently the public are in fear. They’re saying the coppers have lost control. Do these people not use the Met Police website? You can now report your crime online. Take control for yourself.
