Great podcast

A few minutes in to my first listen, enjoying it already!

Karen drinks wine ,

Love it!

One of my favourite podcasts, entertaining, engaging and thought provoking look at a variety of issues.

O.Chis ,

Always interesting and provocative

I have been listening to this Podcast since it’s start and it is - and always has been! - one of my favourites.
