What better way to bring up our milestone than by welcoming the former Royals marksman?

It’s a year of landmarks down at TTE Towers - with our tenth anniversary on the way, as well as the club’s 150th birthday and our 250th podcast episode.

You may remember our 100th episode recorded live at the Madejski Stadium, number 150 with Reading band The Amazons, episode 200 featuring great memories from podcast friends past and present, and indeed episode 1 where some blokes called West and Williams spoke about a title-winning season. Weird.

So we thought who better to welcome to the podcast for episode 250 than Nicky Forster, a Royals hero involved in numerous play-off runs, several iconic moments... and with a fair few goals scored along the way.

Marc Mayo and Marco Bader talk to Nicky about his arrival at the club, overcoming injury, that famous night against Wigan, winning promotion at Brentford, play-off defeats to Walsall and Wolves, and everything in between.
