Loved the David Baddeil episode

David is always so interesting to listen to. And the fact you know each other well makes it all the more fun.

Brilliant

I LOVE this podcast. I didn’t think I was particularly curious about the subject of ‘fame’, but Barnaby is such a great host, this podcast feels like you’re being invited to listen in on a candid chat between friends, that casually manages to delve into fascinating subjects surrounding the human condition as a whole - and addresses how fame, or life around it, may or may not elevate their experiences.
I’ve laughed. I’ve cried. And now I’m hooked.

Enjoyed the discussion. Thank you
