Good thank you

Enjoyable, but I do miss Owen and Ned

Casualty of Waugh

Not the same since Owen Bennett left, and there isn’t a complex issue out there which Paul Waugh can’t both over simplify and then get on the wrong side of.

Thirty minutes of silly giggling

The first time I’ve listened and the last.
The podcast consisted of several daft people laughing and giggling along with each other even though nothing was remotely funny
The female Scottish former labour advisor was particularly silly.
Were they all drunk perhaps?
Not for me (or anyone with a brain.)
