Brilliant, informative and witty

A great podcast that makes sense of this Brexit saga! I enjoy the guests who are always able to provide clarity as well as the podcast host Rebecca who is the glue to this rather wonderful podcast. Glad to have discovered it and couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Well done

At last people who know what they are talking about (successful business owners rather than spivs like Hammond & Gauke telling lies
But the female presenter is I am afraid not the brightest button in the drawer and needs to be replaced by someone with more than half a neuron
