Stephen Bunting, Rob Cross and Daryl Gurney join The Darts Show podcast to reflect on the UK Open and look forward to a crucial run in the Premier League.
With Colin Lloyd on the phone, and Michael Bridge on paternity leave, Paul Prenderville is in the studio on his own but there's plenty to talk about after another frantic fortnight in the tungsten world.
We look back at a magnificent UK Open as Michael van Gerwen finds his first title of 2020 in style, the battle at the foot of the Premier League is hotting up with Judgement Night just a few weeks away, and we talk walk-ons!

Rob Cross - it's been boom and bust for Voltage over the last 18 months. Major titles have come his way, but there has been inconsistency to his game as well. We check in with Cross for the story of his season so far and an impressive new regime that seen him fitter than ever.
Stephen Bunting - the latest of the Challengers is an anomaly given that The Bullet played in the Premier League in 2015.
