Gripping

The only bad thing about this podcast is having to wait for the next episode. So gripping!

Tries to Make a Villain Look Like a Saint

The podcast tries hard and technically it succeeds. After all, it's produced by a professional outfit.

But trying to make Nicola look like she's been hard done by is very on-the-nose. She is a liar of the highest order - she has shown this via her conduct - and I wish the journalist illustrated this rather than try to sanctify her life.
