Brilliant

Really well explained and paced😊

Hooked

I'm totally hooked and wait impatiently each week for the next episode. Ben has done a really thorough job and has managed to persuade a lot of the key players to give riveting interviews. I love the way the whole is constructed of individual podcasts exploring a particular angle. As the picture builds you have a sense of getting the inside track. Kudos to Ben for making it with all his colleagues and kudos to The Telegraph for publishing it. Not sure why the paper hasn't promoted it more -it certainly merits it. Grateful thanks from an avid listener!

Pretty good

Nothing particularly new, but an interesting trot through the events, and interviews with some of the players, mostly, unsuprisingly, more minor ones.
