30 – Bustin’ Down The Bangladeshi Door



Recorded on Wednesday April 27th, 2016 with Harry Knight, Ru Hill and Asher King

INTRODUCTION:

The guys started by talking about Harry finally getting his powered paraglider off the ground last week.

Ru mentioned that he met David Murphy of The Imaginary Surf Company in the surf the other day, before the boys then got into a very geeky discussion about where in the Game of Thrones world would get the best surf.
