Episode 197 of the BYC Podcast: The Eton Haris Episode

Off White Thunder heads to the highveld to meet The Godfather for a craft ale. The boys talk about the hiding being dished out to Sri Lanka by Luke Ronchi, the spitefulness in Australian cricket, pre-World Cup foaming, and the lovely tale of Whitney/Hadlee and a cherished red ball.

Emails from Around the World feature more staggering kings of sport and multisport and the filth of Australia. News or Ruse is in Hamilton, inside KP’s head, and in a hotel with the very frightened Haris Sohail.

Episode 196 of the BYC Podcast: The Insurance Returns Episode

Off White Thunder returns to the fold, joining The Godfather and Kev in the aftermath of the NZ Cricket World Cup selection. Debate rages. The boys are excited about Grant Elliott (AKA third party, fire & theft)  returning to the squad and are out of control after the magnificent Test match between Kane Williamson and Kumar Sangakkara at The Basin.

Emails land from around the world – including notes about the trauma of being a Kiwi in Australia when Australia win, the Karachi street fighter Javed Miandad warrants a mention as Muzz talks cricket royalty, the preposterous “sixiness” of Tim Southee, and a board game review from a guy called Jamoz.

Episode 195 of the BYC Podcast: The Museum Archive Episode

The Godfather and Kev are excited and parked up in the hallowed concrete of the NZ Cricket Museum’s archive room on Day 1 of the Basin Reserve test between NZ and Sri Lanka, surrounded by a cornucopia of cricketing memorabilia and miscellany.

There is a bombardment of Emails from Around the World – they talk about Brendon McCullum, cricket songs, abuse, flasks of tea and the stuff that “dreams are made of”. They also discuss the impossibility of international cricket at Whangamata, hat-tip Sir Richard and Sir Garfield then head off to watch the toss.

Episode 194 of the BYC Podcast: The Nobel Prize Episode

The Godfather and Kev sit down on Boxing Day to salivate over Brendon McCullum’s incredible feats & sixes & the deliciousness that is Hagley Park. There are a few emails from Around the World – they talk Ray Lindwall and league, Felix and music, and the continuing saga of Mark Vermeulen.

The News or Ruse is in West Sussex and Kabul, as well as in Melbourne with an Indian batsman, there’s some weird Phil Hughes stuff going on – and the BYO booze to the cricket fiasco at the Mount gets a mention too.

Episode 193 of the BYC Podcast: The Backyard Christmas Episode

It’s time for the annual BYC podcast Xmas BBQ, but Off White Thunder, Kev & The Godfather are in recovery mode after the Aussies win another Test and ruin another Saturday night. The boys are nervously excited about the NZ World Cup squad and the stunning 3-2 Desert Series win over Pakistan.

Emails from Around the World include talk of the prodigal son JD Ryder, some rugby league history, and Muzz’s memories of Lancaster Park.

The News or Ruse is UnIndian, working for Toyota in Palmerston North, playing cricket in Clifton and looking for a woman from Afghanistan and the UAE.

The boys are also thinking of Martin Crowe.

Episode 192 of the BYC Podcast: The Box Cricket Episode

Kev and The Godfather park up after the Aussies win the Adelaide Test and they are not happy. But they warm up after they find out Brendon McCullum has been named the New Zealander of the Year, and that Anton Devcich is in the 30-man New Zealand squad for the World Cup Down Under.

There are emails from Texas and West Coast America, Scotland, Miramar and a documentary maker in Straya too.

The News or Ruse is in Hawera with Jeff Wilson’s wife, the top of the South Island, but not hungover with the Buchanans. The lads are staggered at the discovery of the existence of the Box Cricket League and wonder how a Kiwi version could get off the ground.

Episode 191 of the BYC Podcast: The Verdun Scott’s a Legend Episode

Off White Thunder returns to talk cricket and the periphery of cricket with The Godfather and Kev.

The mailbag is bulging with emails from around the world so the boys get into talking Daniel Vettori’s eyesight and charm, Anton Devcich’s lead, some abuse about the audio post-production, and the catalogue of stars who make up the Cricket Rugby League World XIII (e.g. G Hughes, L Botham, J Ackland, R Lindwall). Verdun Scott should be more famous given he played cricket and league for New Zealand.

News or Ruse is in Central Districts, Davey Warner, Ishant Sharma and South Africa.
