We do a podcast with Dan Liebke in which we revisit the funnier moments of historic Ashes series. It’s called The Ridiculous Ashes and the latest series, focusing on England’s memorable 2013 win, is now underway. Have a listen! (Or don’t, if you’re busy. It’s not going to be significantly life-changing or anything.)
The 2013 Ashes is of course not to be confused with the 2013/14 series, which we’ve already done. This is the one in England that began with Stuart Broad not walking and Australia’s surprise spin pick launching a load of Agar bombs after coming in at number 11.
Those events are pretty central to episode one, which our Patreon backers may already have heard after we gave them early access to it a couple of months back. It’s got Pat Cummins, Australia Test captain, in it too, having his say on the ridiculousness of the match.
Pat Actual Cummins.
We’ll add embeds of all the episodes further down the page, as and when they go live.

Here are links to previous series of the Ridiculous Ashes.
First up, it’s Trent Bridge for a showdown between two of the most ridiculous moments in Ashes history – Ashton Agar’s 98 and Stuart Broad not walking. A colossal match-up so absurd we need Pat Cummins to drop in and help us sort it out. Which he does.
Lord’s next for the birth of Root Maths, Graeme Swann instigating the ‘worst piece of cricket in Test history’ and decisions that suck ass #bullshit.
Alex and Dan zoom up to Old Trafford for the third Test of the 2013 Ridiculous Ashes, where they celebrate the return of David Warner, Alastair Cook’s easy listening captaincy, belated time Snicko and Stuart Broad walking.
Alex and Dan are off to Chester-le-Street for the fourth Test of the 2013 Ridiculous Ashes, which features discussions on the baggilessness of Australian helmets, Jonathan Trott’s sideways wicket celebration and the Summer of Bell.
The 2013 Ridiculous Ashes concludes with the final Test at The Oval, which gives Alex and Dan plenty of things to muse upon, including the one-Test wonderment of Simon Kerrigan and James Faulkner, the gruesome birth of Steve Smith as we now know him and Chekhov’s light meter.
