  1. It’s quite sad to see The Ashes doing so well on free to air TV in Australia whilst them being behind a paywall for so long in the UK means they’re barely talked about here. It’s one thing regular test cricket being behind a pay wall but The Ashes is the sports Olympics in Aus and England and it is that, not the odd token T20 and completely pointless “The Hundred” that should be live and free.

    1. Interesting. Do you have a system similar to Australia’s anti syphoning list where certain sport has to be show on free to air tv?

  2. Last nights episode of Australian Story was so good I went and found Hugh’s podcast series and listened to the episode with Samuel Johnson as the featured guest.
