    Good podcast - Douglas Anderson

    Sorry if link has already been posted, but a great podcast (Life Goals) with guest Dougie Anderson who some may know from 5 Live's 'Fighting Talk' and other shows.

    The older posters will appreciate many of his early 80's observations about Hibs and going to games

    It's split into two episodes......some good music content too for the music aficionados it'll bring back mullet and leg warmer memories

    Not listened to it yet but Life Goals has a lot of good content.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    I think you'll really enjoy it BH, Dougie is so enthusiastic and adds genuine warmth and humour to being a football (and Hibs) fan.

    I met Douglas back in the 90s. Good bloke.

    I dipped in and out of that podcast, fast forwarding to the Hibs bits but his experience of the Scottish Cup win - as well as the context he puts it in re his dad - is great and very funny. Switching off the TV at 2-1 Rangers and putting on a Nick Drake album for 'self preservation' made me laugh. Mind you, as he points out, the lyrics of opening track were remarkably appropriate for long-suffering Hibs fans and their relationship with the Scottish Cup at that particular moment in time:

    Time has told me
    You're a rare find
    A troubled cure
    For a troubled mind

    And time has told me
    Not to ask for more
    For someday our ocean
    Will find its shore.

    Thanks for the recommendation - I've never heard of him or the podcast, but I really enjoyed it - many very funny moments and I'm a few years older than him, but some great memories.

    The story about Dalgleish and Souness is classic.

    I'll listen to more of these.

    Listened to it now. Its a great listen and like a lot of us his story of his cup final day and what it meant mirrors a lot of us. Found myself getting emotional again just hearing his account.

    Life Goals is a great podcast can highly recommend it.

    The story about his 70-something mum going to watch the open-topped bus and coming across other widows, bereaved mothers and sisters was very touching.

    Really enjoyed this double episode - and the background and aftermath of the 2016 Cup Final was a powerful and quite emotional listen.

    Great stuff

    Really enjoyed that. Perfect accompaniment to this morning's hoovering, albeit I had to have a wee break during the discussion of SDG's goal.

    Actually met Dougie a couple of times when he must have been about 17/18, as he was friends with my mate's sister. Remember him being a nice guy and was really pleased for him when he started doing well for himself.
