  1. Brian The Ruminator says

    Doc was an intriguing and significant character, so it will be great to hear GH’s take. No doubt there will also be segues to footy and cricket to round it out. Should be a ripper.

  2. Jarrod_L says

    Have everything crossed that this goes ahead – should be an interesting chat!

  3. Mark 'Swish' Schwerdt says

    I hope that it is still on too, but if it isn’t, here is Graham Cornes and Gideon from earlier this week
