Pokemon, Trains, England, Selections, Captaincy. It's all there.
How do you assess and summarise the career of a player who not only played cricket on a different plane but also touched the many lives that make up the cricket fraternity? Join Damith and Andrew as they seek out what made Mahela a special cricketer and a special human. They talk to leading cricket journalists, former coaches and ex-players to give you the ultimate tribute to an all time legend.
With special guests: Tom Moody, Russel Arnold, Dav Whatmore, Lawrence Booth (Editor, Wisden Cricketers' Almanac), Jarrod Kimber (ESPNCricinfo) and Dileep Premachandran (Editor, Wisden India).

What has Damith been doing in Andrew's room late at night? What's wrong with the Sri Lankan opening pair? How good is Sri Lanka's attack? The answer to all these before a quick catch up with Russel Arnold on Mahela's retirement, followed by a full-on gloat-fest on Sri Lanka winning in England, and India not. Your hosts as ever, Damith and Andrew.

Join the Armchair Critics as Damith backpedals furiously on Ajantha Mendis, and Andrew offers apologies to the much-maligned SSC pitch. The guys recap the South Africa series, heap praises on Angelo Mathews, look ahead to the South Africa series and contemplate the end of the Mahela Jayawardene era
Andrew and Damith straddle the line between bravery and stupidity predicting a big ODI series win for Sri Lanka, right before the team crashes out for 67. They also pussyfoot around the Dinesh Chandimal in the room, and look ahead to the England Tests, with a twitter roundup thrown in.

Remember Andrew and Damith? Neither did we until the pair made an unanticipated return and deep dive into Sri Lanka's hunt for their new coach. They stumble through their podcasting cobwebs to marvel at Sangakkara 2.0, bring out their raincoats to talk about the NZ tour and the the impact of the Murali Cup. Grab it while it's hot and listen while you can because who knows when they'll do another show.
Damith Samarakoon and Andrew Fernando contribute editorial content to ESPNCricinfo when not running from the SLC.
Damith blogs regularly at www.theflyslip.net and you can follow him on twitter @theflyslip. Andrew is ESPNCricinfo's Sri Lankan Correspondent and you can follow him on twitter @andrewffernando
Neither of them have ever been gagged. Yet.
