A fun-filled podcast for your Monday morning commute that perfectly wraps up the sporting weekend.

Three sports journalists/former colleagues/maybe even friends/we aren't putting a label on it - Gerard Meagher of the Guardian, David Jordan of The Times and your host Charlie Talbot-Smith of Sportsbeat - bring you everything a sports nut needs to get you through the week ahead.

A review of the back pages, quizzes, trivia, mad-cap predictions, searingly hot takes and well-informed wit - we've got you covered from football to fishing via rugby and everything in between (well probably not much fishing to be honest!) Come join...
