Good but slightly narrow minded

Some superb analysis of the political and social state of affairs in Britain. However considering both presenters are at the socialist end of the spectrum, they could make more effort to engage right wing viewpoints in the debate, otherwise they fall into the trap of preaching the converted (of which I am one), which I’m sure is not their aim!

Dreadful

Owen Jones doesn’t know what he is talking about!

Too infrequent!....

I really enjoy this podcast- in fact I donate toward it’s running costs, however 4 months without another episode????
If you are going to stop the podcast you shouldn’t be taking the money still!
