Compelling listening

I just found out about this podcast and listened to an episode to check it out—and then listened to three more. Such a relief to hear thorough discussion of issues as they affect human beings, as opposed to the typical horse-race style of media commentary focusing solely on how they affect a political party’s electoral chances. I KNEW journalism could be done differently and better, and you proved it. What a relief. Thank you.

Good show

Only listened to one show (with Dimitri Lascaris) but it was far from the “worst podcast ever,” whatever that ludicrous comment was meant to mean. Alex Cosh is a first-rate podcast host and a thoughtful interviewer…
