Unbeaten in eleven, the Reds march to the title continues apace with even more capital punishment dished out, with Crystal Palace this time the recipients of the swarming, whirling, irresistible boys in toxic green whose attacking performance lit up Selhurst Park more than their luminous shirts.

Joined by Adam Smith, Jay McKenna, Ian Salmon and Simon Hughes, Neil Atkinson hosts another victorious big show live from the big room.

Like the Fourth Plinth of Trafalgar Square, the fourth seat at The Rider's table is the one they all want.

For the next few weeks we will be rotating it, starting with this week when Neil Atkinson, John Gibbons and Stephanie Heneghan welcome...

...Rob Gutmann to the warmth of The Rider's bosom.

It means he gets to enjoy all the Rider's talk. The tip, John liking things, Steph not liking things.

What else? Sexy Bats, Britney and Vegas all get a mention. As do Korova and near death experiences. And why we all need to stay nimble.

Ten great songs too. What a Rider. Come on board.

What a win, what a weekend. Gareth Roberts is joined for this week's free podcast by John Gibbons, Daniel Austin, Melissa Reddy and James Sutton to talk about a massive weekend for Liverpool as they shrugged off the disappointment of Manchester United to dispatch a troublesome West Brom side with relative aplomb.

Only just missing out on top spot on goal difference, could Liverpool have done more against a manager they've historically struggled against or did they produce enough against an inspired Ben Foster in the West Brom goal, and from one goalie to another, the microscopic analysis of Loris Karius continues, but is he really in as poorer form as is being made out?

What now for Liverpool with Spurs on the horizon and Crystal Palace at the weekend?

Can a few on the fringes force their way into the picture this weekend?

Andy Heaton is joined for this week's Radio City Talk show by John Gibbons, Gareth Roberts and Jamie Braidwood.

With Liverpool without a league win over a Tony Pulis team in 5 years can Jurgen Klopp finally end the tracksuited long-ball hoodoo that has hung over Anfield for far too long?

The Rider has lost Adam Melia for autumn but Stephanie Heneghan is back in the saddle. She's also done another half marathon and she's brought her bling with her. 

Half way through the show John Gibbons and Neil Atkinson are joined by Si and Phil from Oxjam Chester as they talk about the festival and the project in general. There is also more talk of Liverpool Music Week, as more events are announced.
