Neil Atkinson, John Gibbons and Adam Melia welcome Tania Harrison of Latitude festival onto The Rider as a guest to discuss *that* Saturday night and the logistics of 3-d glasses in a field. Stephanie Heneghan makes her debut sprinkling pop stardust over proceedings and there is talk of camera phones, difficult Sundays in festivals and the game of kubb. The Rider - ten great songs and still prepared to go where other music podcasts fear to tread. Or have the good sense to avoid. Get in the saddle.

Neil, John and Adam talk to Steve Sullivan, maker of a new documentary about Frank Sidebottom/Chris Sievey and Ste Routledge, a long time fan of both. They also play nine crackers, pose the question about parks, question exactly how much pull John Gibbons has and has Neil taken the song selection to pieces this week. It's competitive, it's quick and it features a discussion on Mancunian comedy. It is The Rider and it wants you on board.
