Good content, dodgy audio
Very interesting and informative podcast. I like the way Mike chats easily to his guests and draws out lots of good stories. My only complaint is the audio quality, which is often poor and out of sync.
Fun, informative podcast.
Really enjoyed this podcast. Short and snappy. Great information, in a relaxed but informative format. Came away feeling wiser than when I started listening. Many thanks.
