This show has Shane and it has Jonathan. Can you guess what they talk about? That’s right! Events in the sporting history. From what I hear, that actually talk about the greatest events in sporting history
We talk about how Diego Maradona made the 1986 World Cup in Mexico his own, and in doing so stamped his name permanently into sporting history.
We induct our second team into our Hall of Fame. The Real Madrid side that popularised that popularised the phrase "galacticos". We look at the rule of Santiago Bernabeu, the links with Franco and fascism, and a run of success that remains unparalleled.
We also give a brief mention of the sports & feminist podcast 'Burn it All Down', which if you're not currently listening to, you should.
Emma from The Greatest Show in the Galaxy joins us for a Hot Takes Show. We share our top 5 predictions for the future of sport, and we all know how good we are at predicting, right?

We then revisit the darts Premier League Final from 2013, where the sport's past met its future, as Phil Taylor faced Martin Van Gerwen for that year's Premier League title. (more…)
