Intelligent and entertaining!

Discovered this podcast a few days ago, super “bingeable” - thanks so much!

Love the content not so much the accent.

Loving your content Sinon, on long trips my wife and I really enjoy the show.

The only down side is the posh accent and news reporter like cadence. I personally would just like to feel like you are sitting with us in the car unloading your knowledge rather than feel like we are being fed news. It’s only my opinion among the millions who think otherwise.

Great content.
