Great podcast

Really insightful podcast into the UK classification board

5 stars. One star lost because it's broken

This is a fantastic podcast: candid and thorough, and totally lacking in superfluous fat. But Apple's podcast app can't download it, so I'm forced to stream it which is both a pain and a bit ludicrous at this point in its life. Worth the hassle though, every time.

Very interesting podcast

This is a very interesting podcast, explaining why films are rated what they are, I recommend this podcast for 12+ and some episodes 15+
