Best way to start the day

Excelent, listened to a few of these now. Its easily the best of the Times podcasts and Ms Rana is a perfect host, sensitively and professionally tackling sometimes delicate subject matters. When you get fed up with the constant interrupters on the Today programme, this must be the place to go.
