Hidy-ho ,

Andy is the best

Funniest, smartest guy! If I could have my dream dinner party he would be at the top of the invitation list!

Leave in the curse words, for the love of f#*%k

I’m new to this apparent British institution of a broadcast but I can’t take the word censorship. Is it an inside joke? Did I miss something about this policy in not tuning into the thousands of previous episodes? But every time I hear a “bad word” beeped out I’m sent into a head shaking revery pondering why in a podcast for grownups another grownup is tasked with the idiotic job of taking out the swears.

Always Funny

Andy Zaltzman and his guests are always funny.
