The best of
Motor trade banter ,not to be missed

Tan.k ,

Awkward at times

The thing that saves the show is the industry guests that come on. However so often they don’t get a chance to speak and are left to quietly sit in the background while the hosts rabbit on. I really want to hear from them to be honest. A great opportunity missed.
I feel for Beck. She’s been tirelessly doing her best to host the show but is clearly uncomfortable behind the mic. I actually feel uncomfortable when she speaks to a guest. You may want to look at shaking things up.
Finally the sound quality is often poor. I appreciate everyone is recording remotely but other podcasts are super slick now.

Brilliant

Easy listening and highly entertaining.
