Mr Teeeeed ,

Cracking show

So....... errr........ errrrrmm........ well......... it’s like..... errr....this...... this..... this.... the.......errr......
Lewis, Shehab and Daniel are excellent. Could we ditch the phone call to Peston bit though and maybe get a few female contributors instead. That would get you my fifth star!

A programme of 2 parts: ‘Savage’ attack and Interview about violence to women

1st Part:
I don’t think the word ‘savage’ is consistent with a description of a civilised discussion among three people, at all times seated and talking in a completely pro social way.
Given the race issue as part of the controversy, I think you might want to reflect on this word yet again when a person who is black or so-called ‘mix-race’ is the subject.
2nd Part:
An extremely empathic and thoughtful exchange with the wonderful Jess Philips. I think it is one of the best attempts I’ve heard of a male interviewer discussing this issue with a female.

Livening up 2020

Thanks you guys for another year of great Political coverage of Brexit, COVID-19 and other topics, plus your good guests and a fun quiz to end the year on.
Shouldn’t Robert be allowed to do the quiz with you or is there a danger he would win too many, just a thought to leave you with.
Have a happy safe Christmas wherever you are and look forward to the next podcast, when the UK/EU deal has been done or not!

Regards Rex
