Love The Graps, or #LoveTheGraps, whatever your poison, is a podcast all about UK wrestling from 2 men on the ground. Chris and Alan are regulars at all sorts of British independent wrestling companies, and through this audio outlet we get the hottest of hot takes. Often recorded late at night, after long long journeys home, each show focusses on a particular event, through the lens of 2 very tired men who insist on letting you know not only why they #LoveTheGraps, but what might also fall under the dreaded #NotMyGraps banner. Expect rambling, opinions, calls to arms, and unbridled love for the weird and wide reaching world of independent wrestling!
