The 'Dharmasena', a backpack and Christmas plans

Chambers, Hobbs and Waddelove leave you with a Christmas present. One more episode of Three Reds Kumar to wrap up 2019.

And what a show it was.

In homage to ICC umpire Kumar Dharmasena, the inspiration for the name of our podcast, Chambers talks us through a dance-move that he and his house have come up with - the 'Dharmasena' - coming to a Durham nightclub in 2020.

Hobbs gives us in-depth analysis from Durham University Inter-Collegiate Christian Union Carol Service (yes we agree, they need to work on the name), as well as defending his decision to walk around with Durham University Rugby Club branded backpack (oh dear).

And we always thought Waddelove was old-fashioned, confirmed by his #1 most listened to song on Spotify for 2019 being released in 2014... he also tries (and fails) to find evidence that our '2019 Wrapped' says a lot about us, our relationships and changes in our music tastes through the year. 

In other news, Chambers digs himself into a hole and then an even bigger hole when quizzed why he hasn't bought his train tickets home for Christmas and Waddelove talks about how many calories he will consume on Christmas Day (do we care?).

Oh and a what a year it has been for cricket.

But amongst the chaos, Hobbs does himself proud in the dying seconds: '2019 - thank you to Bob Willis'

We echo those words to an England cricketing legend.

Rest In Peace: Bob Willis (1940-2019)
