Chris and Colin
Chris – ‘Hello Friends, and welcome to another episode of the Bought The Tee Shirt podcast, as always I’m over the moon today because I’ve got yet another fascinating guest, a genuinely nice man. This gentleman supported me when I did my 999 mile run from John O Groats to Lands End, it really meant a lot to me and I’m proud to say hello to Colin MacLachlan.

In addition to Operation Barras and HAHO and HALO skydiving, we discussed the current debate highlighted by former SAS soldier Rusty Firmin, who helped plan the Iranian Embassy hostage rescue during the 1980 siege of whether the shouting and swearing on the show is realistic or TV planning.
