I could not love this podcast more. Hearing Jimmy talk so openly and honestly about his craft and the team is a real privilege, and it’s also bloody funny and joyous. If you love cricket and silliness, this is the podcast for you.

Listened to the whole back catalogue of this podcast since being on maternity leave and it has been my saviour! As much as I love my daughter, man she can pretty boring so having this to keep me company has been a godsend! I’ve woken her up on numerous occasions when laughing so loudly at a rendition the Alan Lamb song or a cleverly formatted quiz game by Matthchin.
Have always enjoyed cricket, my first love for it igniting in 2005 where I cried when we won. I’m properly invested in this pod and watch cricket more than ever! Also have tickets to the Oval in the summer so will be keeping an eye out for Mattchin!
If you’re not listening to this podcast, not sure what you are listening to that’s better!

This is insufferable rubbish, and that Radio 1 bloke who hosts this is a complete tool.

Occasionally good. Relentlessly sycophantic

This podcast has made me laugh and cry in equal measure, sometimes both at the same time. It has been a shining light in an awful
Year and a half. It is always funny, but sometimes uniquely insightful and heartwarming. It is unashamedly sensitive and full of genuine passion for sport and for looking after one another. Long May it
Continue!

If you like podcasts, you should come to me. I’ve got about 12 different subscriptions. Don’t try and beat me on Trailfinders though, that’s sort of my specialty. I will know every possible topic before you do.
Could still be fun though!
Cheers!

We don’t like Tailenders, oh no, we love it!

A genuinely hilarious, bonkers and entertaining podcast. A must listen for anyone no matter your relationship with cricket - for that is exactly what this is not about

The weekly(ish) pick me up we all need. Who wouldn’t want to listen to these guys on their loosely based cricket podcast? Matchin is a genius. Jimmy a living legend and absolute national treasure, G Force maintains some order, Felix asks some very good questions, Sharkmister is excellent when faded up, and Sandra Bullock IS a very good actress.

Tailenders is like an audio gin and tonic at the end of a hellish day...it witty, irrelevant but passionate about cricket, with added relative of a great cricketer hosting ‘original’ quizzes 😂(we don’t talk about the Mark Wood incident, mostly as it results in spontaneous sniggering)
Go well

This podcast does not fail to make me and my partner smile. There’s been episodes where I’ve sobbed, and others where I’ve hysterically laughed.
I was not a cricket fan before this podcast, much to my partner’s dismay (he’s obsessed). Now I’m obsessed, and whilst playing along to some of Matchin’s games I often “out-cricket” him. Thank you for being our comfort blanket during this utterly bizarre time.

Like feeling happy? Listen to this

Mutechin, Greg, Felix, Jimmy and Sharky are like my best friends, it’s a friendship club randomers are allowed to join and I’ll be eternally grateful.
Guaranteed laugh out loud japes with clever, sometimes poignant, loosely cricketing based chat. “How are you, WHO are you?” had me howling with laughter in deserted streets on a late night walk (Feb 21) as does the false teeth story (Jul 19) every single time ... I’ve listened MANY times.
The Mattchin report is goosebumpy poetry (Hackey live Oct 19) and watching the Instagram live quiz unfold (Apr 20) was tears-running-down-my-cheek hysterical. It has been said many times but Mattchin is an absolute genius, don’t ever let him go....... well. Cheers!

Favourite podcast I’ve listened to, wasn’t a cricket fan before but have really gotten into it now. Also enjoyable if you just like cheese on toast. Ps. Start from the beginning or nothing will make sense, it’s worth it

An escape especially in 2020 but make sure you also listen to the back catalogue because a) it’s brilliant and b) the title of this review will then make sense. Greg, Felix, Jimmy, Matchin and Sharky thank you for providing loosely cricketing entertainment but above all for providing an outstanding podcast that never fails to deliver.

Best podcast around

My friend recently asked me if I could be friends with any celebrity in the world who would it be - when I answered “Felix White from the Macabees” she seemed confused.
I look forward to every new episode of Tailenders, guaranteed weekly jolly japes that never fail to make me laugh!

Used to be great. Gone down hill

Jimmy sounds like he doesn’t care, Felix acts more like a child each episode and Greg is a bit try hard and becomes more and more silly each episode, borderline cringeworthy. Also the fact that they said they are going on a UK tour and not leaving England sums them up.

Only just started listening

The highlight of the week, when we get an episode. “Works” at so many levels, education, friendship, support, laughter. Your insanity keeps me sane, thank you so much.

I love cricket, but this podcast is amazing whether you like it or not. It’s got me through two labours for our beautiful girls and also helped distract me for a few precious moments to help rest my brain after the loss of our eldest daughter last year

Absolute nonsense. Quizzes, shredder chat, spicy mangoes, with a little sprinkling of cricket. It is glorious and I hope it never ends.

A magnificent, delirious, anarchic and frankly bonkers mix of cricket, comedy and crusic. Big thanks to Jimmy, Greg, Felix, Mattchin and Sharkey for making this work. It shouldn't. But it does. Where else could you hear England's premier fast bowler generally arsing about having a whale of a time. Having just heard the 'Death Blood Death' episode have been compelled to edit my review and push for a 6 Star rating. Folk Metal?!..... You better believe it.

If you are ever feeling a bit down, listening to the live World Cup episodes from 2019 is the perfect remedy. By far the best of all podcasts.

I find myself discovering the world of tv quizzes and singing “I am the one and only” by Chesney Hawkes .
And that is how Tailenders can change your life too .

Started from the beginning about three weeks ago, and I'm already at the 2019 Ashes. I listen to it on the way to work, back from work, during work, before I go to bed.... Do I have a problem? Maybe... But will this podcast make you laugh, cringe, wince, watery eyed and proud of strangers who you don't even know? Most definitely.

However you’re feeling, you’ll go well!
