Can’t get enough of this!

I’ve always loved Louis Theroux and his style of interviewing - he manages to get the best out of his guests and they seem relaxed and willing to share their views on all kinds of topics. I only discovered these podcasts a week ago and I’m bingeing on them at the moment - keep ‘em coming please!

Waxing Lyrical!

I was almost prepared to skip the Ruby Wax episode, not being a fan hers in the 90s. But I listened and I’ve got to say it was the best episode I’d heard in an already great series of broadcasts. Really resonated. Thanks guys for a tremendous show.
