Repetition is painful

The repetition and delivery of this podcast is painful. If the story wasn’t so interesting, I wouldn’t have kept listening. Well researched. There is just too much padding. It could’ve been condensed to half the number of episodes. The podcast is over laboured and the “banter” feels contrived. Presenters definitely come across as smug.

So unspeakably bad

You can definitely hear the influence of 60 minutes on this podcast - over promises and under delivers. Claiming that people who bring their lunch to work must have just bought a house is not investigative journalism. This marks for me the demise of fairfax. Very sad

Presenters were terrible

Story seemed interesting but I couldn’t listen to the presenters and the over laboured explanations - so long winded and sounded so scripted. It was like listening to a childrens book
