BYC Podcast #173: “The Hedonism 2 Episode”

This week Off White Thunder, Kev and The Godfather come to you from central Wellington on a Thursday night.

The chaps wade into a smorgasbord of emails from around the world and latch onto hedonistic and Y-fronted memories of the West Indies, we meet The Buffalo, NZ v Pakistan warrants a mention and we get powerfully corrected on our egregious Duckworth-Lewis malfunction last week. We roll out an old hit about Monty P and his black patka and Cricket Violence Corner stars Brett Lee.

BYC Podcast #172: “The Black Cap Supporter Clone Episode”

This week Off White Thunder returns to the fray. We crystal ball the West Indies Test series, wheel out a horrendous old version of Buffalo Soldier (remixed), and the News or Ruse is surprisingly sophisticated.

We get stuck into some emails from around the world, and Kev introduces his 1992 World Cup Cricket Trivia Challenge. Cricket Violence Corner is in leafy middle America.

BYC Podcast #171: “The Michael J Fox Episode”

This week we go back to the future as Kev and The Godfather rekindle their original BYC cricketing romance.

The chaps crap on and on about the West Indies, long-lost friends and enemies, and Mark Craig playing for the Barmy Army. News or Ruse returns, and Cricket Violence Corner is also back with a vengeance, starring Shropshire.

There’s a disappointing finish too, as per usual.

BYC Podcast #170: “The Golden Summer Episode”

This week the team bask in the glory of what has been a sensational summer.

Wells and Lane are quietly pleased the cycle of abuse has ended.

Cleaver waxes lyrical about McCullum’s 300 and MD Crowe’s latest article is under the periscope in The Book Nook.

The Alternative Commentary Collective Aural Special: Part 1

If you’re a cricket fan and you don’t know what The Alternative Commentary Collective is all about then you’re (a) a massive loser and (b) missing out.

We’re a short format outfit so we aren’t commentating the Test series but, just in time for Day 1 of the Test match at the Basin Reserve, we’ve unleashed Part 1 of the lowlights from our audio debut during the Indian series.

A special thanks to the good buggers at TRN who edited their iHearts out getting this together. Enjoy – and apologies in advance.
