PWU Wigan Athletic Podcast No. 107: A Sweaty Junction

Traffic light graveyard

Now that those meddlesome cameras have finally migrated south for winter, the Progress With Unity Podcast team can concentrate on motoring into the Mackay era without 100 gatsos flagging up their every inconsistency. Orange cones can be kicked clear and traffic lights ignored, as there are no turns ahead for 3,487 miles – this is Latics country, after all. A country where it is Latics Time all the time every television plays the 2013 FA Cup Final (recommended infographic attached) on endless repeat… ahh yes.

Oh sorry, went into another daydream there. But JWAW Towers is always grateful of contributions, and this week has seen plenty. It’s a Number Nine Revolution (hyuk) as the regulars (minus Barry) pore over Wigan’s greatest strikers – the @PWUPodcast question of the week. Next week’s poser: is it impossible to eat 100% of a Cadbury’s Flake? No, wait… why do flammable and inflammable mean the same thing?!

I hope you enjoyed this FAB edition of Wigan’s premier fancast, for which editing duties were handed over to JWAW. You must not leave technical feedback at PWU’s Twitter, iTunes, RSS and app pages, but direct all your comments to the stand in editor – namely Mr Headline Writer if they are negative, or Mr JWAW himself if they are positive. I shall say only this: it’s very hard indeed to edit audio on an overclocked BBC Micro, so cut me (or Mr Headline Man) some of that genuine North American slack. Hmm, wonder if they make slacks from said slack?

Also, don’t ask Barry about his absence, because he doesn’t want anyone to know he’s been at that vintage pie rally. Instead, focus on his return for next week’s potential double edition… and there’s a free teaser for you. Keep that teletext hold button firmly pressed.
