Brilliant host. A real treasure

Melvyn Bragg is an amazing host, knowledgeable and quick witted, always keeping the discussion on track. I’ll happily listen to even the most obscure subject matter when the host and his expert guests provide such elevated yet entertaining discussion.

Why didn't this continue?

I'm listening to the episode about the Indian Mutiny and the conversation is just the kind of historical discussion I ww looking for. The guests are brilliant (a far as this episode is concerned) and the host is great at asking questions and making sure the conversation doesn't stray off the tracks. Why did this stop in 2011? Are there any more coming?

Can you let her finish?

I could not stand to listen to more than 10 minutes of a podcast as the host repeatedly interrupted or mansplained a subject to his female experts. I would expect more from BBC. The women brought onto the podcast were passionate and incredibly interesting and ACCURATE in their topics of discussion but were cut short by the host telling them that they were getting off of HIS scheduled notes and would they please stop talking. This disgusts me.
