It’s 100 minutes of Delaney-isms, hard-hitting criticism, nonsense and Pringle crunching – It’s Episode 30, only on Soundcloud!

If you feel so inclined, go for a run, take a scenic drive, jazz up your afternoon commute or just curl up on the couch and play some games while you listen to the opinions of three Smash Bros-addicted Sydneysiders.
