Love

Essential listening since brexitcast onwards. Brilliant to have the news discussed by such knowledgeable people but delivered in a lovely light hearted way.

Please don’t stop!

Please don’t stop your newscasts! I need you to keep me informed while the government seem to be deciding they don’t need to be regularly explaining themselves! Please have plenty of scientists on, too!
