  1. Hey guys, love the podcasts but if possible can you keep the size of the download file to below 100mb? The last 3 have been just larger than that, and almost standard phones don’t let you download files that size outside wifi (mine doesn’t or at least I don’t know how to change it) can be frustrating when you want to listen to the pod on the go
    Keep up the good work though! Cheers

    1. Hi Michael. I didn’t realise this was an issue. Have you tried using the Apple Podcast or Acast apps? I’ve had both Apple and Andriod phones and haven’t had an issue with using those apps to download the pod. I haven’t tried to download it direct from Soundcloud though I have to admit.
      Let me know what you’re using and I’ll see if we can find a fix.

      We try to keep to an hour every episode and I always wonder how we’ll fill the time but then we get halfway through player ratings and 50 minutes have gone by.

      1. Michael, would agree an app is your best bet, you can download to listen offline or stream it and those systems probably downconvert the file for a smaller size too.

      2. Hey Cammy, it was via Apple Podcast apps that i had the issue in the first place…

      3. I’ve had a look on line and apparently this is a thing but limited to Iphones. There’s some workarounds but I’d hate to recommend any as I don’t know if they work/ will break your phone.
        We have no control over what happens once the podcast is picked up by ITunes so I don’t think there’s anything we can do about it. You could try the Acast app to see if that makes any difference.
        I hadn’t noticed this as I usually download podcasts over wifi at home then listen to them in the car on the way to work.

  2. I think it’s worth noting that of the Lions’ four tries against Chiefs, one was a penalty try and the next two were against fourteen men. Whilst they’re getting better, it’s not brilliant.

  3. I must thank you for the trail at the beginning. It is warmed me up on a pretty drab day! Only just started listening to the pod but I’ve just finished having a wee chuckle to myself…brilliant!!!
