Progress With Unity returns to its old haunt, The Springfield Hotel, for a wet September preview edition of its award-winning* podcast. In the absence of domestic football to comment on, the team rattle through their well-worn stand-up routines with ‘fair to middling’ references to a variety of tenuous topics. Or at least *I* used it as an opportunity to peddle ‘jokes’ of dubious quality blatantly lifted from that centuries-old ‘Comedy Tropes‘ document I stole from a local museum. Hahah!**

Liechester Foxes are next up for the Toupee-Wearing Athletics, but such issues are forced to the very back of the (FA Cup winning tour) bus in favour of our all-important script (coughs) which requires us to fire off cheesy gag after archaic gag. We really *can* keep on topic, you know, but choose not to for the sake of being different.

Contents: Billy Davies & international news (1:22); Leicester preview (3:00); brief Zulte Waregem preview and Wigan 10k (24:57)

Get involved!

Progress With Unity is currently the only Wigan Athletic fan podcast on the web. If you wish to get involved or have any topics you’d like to be discussed, please get in touch with Barry at wigan@vitalfootball.co.uk, marking your email PWU Podcast.

Other web links can be found following the colon: iTunes, RSS, app. Click them as you see fit, and if you have any good jokes, please send them to me on a sticky note and I will try and squeeze them in where I can. If not, I might stick them in the script for that forthcoming radio comdrama you may get to hear before England win the World Cup. I am aware such a statement is bold and quite possibly foolish, for everyone knows our mighty international side will wipe the floor with all comers when Callum McManaman inevitably becomes the right wing equivalent of Wayne Rooney. So, erm, I’d best get back to writing, AKA drinking coffee and waiting for humorous content to fall into my lap.

*PWU recently won the ‘Only Wigan Athletic Podcast’ award at the ‘Podcasts Few People Care About’ dinner in Copenhagen last week.

**Except the joke was on me because they were all edited out.
