Borissmash ,

generally great!

specifically sensational

Hey cool ,

Give us a shout out will you?

I think this is my 2nd review of Nick’s podcast. I could say the topics are interesting, Nick is very funny which makes it all worth listening too. But really, i’m just hear for the shout out.

Greenland girl ,

Nick I love you Toby and James

Thank you for your inimitable perspectives and wry ripostes. We are starved of dissent Down Under and rely on The Ministry of non silly talks to brighten our lives. All up we know that though we have Toby days, James days and Nick days three lifetimes wouldn’t be enough to say well done you lot.
