The show is aired on Radio 5 Live saturday mornings between 11 and midday and is based around the ESPN show Around The Horn. Each show follows the same format, there are four guests who in turn talk about recent sporting events with their wit and knowledge about sport. The final section of the show is called Any Other Business where both hosts and guests can talk about anything else they want to discuss. If you listen to the radio show live, then you can phone up and participate with the discussions that are occurring. 

If you are interested in sport then I highly recommend this podcast as it looks at sporting events in a different and also comical way. It doesn’t just discuss the normal everyday sports such as Football, it talks about a whole array. Not all seasons are available but there is always an episode available that is guaranteed to make the biggest sports fan laugh out loud.
