Freddie is the best journalist

I like Freddie’s work. He is usually very balanced and fair which is unusual in todays journalists

Melbasy ,

Mamet forever

The interview with David Mamet - a wonderfully entertaining debunking of wokeism. Generally, always a must listen podcast.

Inconsistency

Freddie’s performance in the Gladden Pappin interview was incredibly biased and was irritating to listen to. It’s one thing to push back and interrogate the ideas of your guest to assess their veracity. It’s quite another to almost wilfully misunderstand his points and champion leftist ideas in search of a gotcha moment, especially when he’s done other interviews criticising where those leftist ideas have gotten the West! A strange performance by Freddie who is usually very balanced.
