Show Notes

Join topless host Gabe Cook, with fully-clothed hosts Grant Hutchison and Martyn Goodwin-Sharman as they take down the badminton nets at the Neutral Cider Hotel!

First, Gabe brings joy with a certain celebration including presents for the boys, listeners you can cut the tension with a knife in this section! After the warnings of danger, Producer Scott asks the guys what their plans for the future of the show are, which opens up some hints as to the year ahead!

On the Commodore 64 this week, the guys have a brief chat with the one and only Tom Oliver! A guest in the news section is a first here, and it's for a good cause: two of our previous guests in Oliver’s and Anxo have teamed up to bring some stunning UK ciders to the States, so listeners in the USA can crack some of the wares that we’ve showcased in the hotel. 

Then it’s onto the rebrand of Hawkes, which seems to have been cider’s marmite in terms of views! Martyn likes the stickers and Grant doesn’t like the language, let us know what you guys think at our Speakpipe to be included in next week’s episode. 

This week’s guests are Dan Pucci and Craig Cavallo, fresh from their release of a jingle worthy book; American Cider! Encompassing a full historical, pomological, cultural and geographical assessment of the diversity of cider from their home nation, American Cider sheds light on what I, and many others, call the most exciting cider scene on the planet. 

The guys chat everything in cider from both sides of the pond! From the false narratives and the forefathers, the great 'can' debate, where the scene is now and which place makes the best cider! They’re two wonderful people, and their collaboration is an awesome read!

Speaking of collaborations, the guys were fortunate enough to crack Tessellation; a team up of titans Wyndridge Cider and Pilton. It’s a marriage of the UK and American cider scenes, and a perfect match for the authors of each territory’s tomes.

This week’s question is now at the top of the list for Speakpipe, and definitely one the guys loved!
