"It was like playing darts in the Shining." John Part talks us through a UK Open that got everyone talking in our latest Sporting Life Darts Podcast.

Darth Maple's return to the major TV stage for the first time in three years captured the imagination of the darting world during what was an unforgettable UK Open in Minehead this past weekend for many reasons!

In the sixth episode of the Sporting Life Darts Podcast, the three-time world champion joins our darts expert Chris Hammer and host Dom to tell us about his Storm Emma-defying journey from Canada (think Planes, Trains and Automobiles!), what it was like playing in the eerie atmosphere of an empty venue and the buzz of being at the centre of attention once again.

There were huge shocks, many underdog stories and a popular winner in Gary Anderson - so listen to John's account from the eye of the Storm.

Oh, and there is of course another round of Premier League Darts predictions ahead of this Thursday night's action in Leeds, including a 6/1 treble!
