Beesotted is 1000 episodes old. Happy birthday to us. And in good old Beesotted style, the Beesotted crew went down the pub – The Castle Inn in Ealing – to celebrate fully

And what a bumper podcast we have for your. Starting off with the first podcast recorded on the train from Middlesborough to London on Saturday 24th September 2014 after The Bees got spanked 4-0, the show – which will run over two episodes – navigates Brentford’s journey through the Championship and into the Premier League

Billy The Bee Grant and Dave Laney Lane are joined by a plethora of characters both in the pub and in the virtual joint with members of the original podcast crew of Matt The Allard Allard, Martin The Dutchman Holland and Sav Savvy Bee Kyriacou joining us for a few swift halves. Also joining us were relative newbies Dan The Man Mann and Liberal Tom Fidler
