Great podcast, quite amusing, do wish they did more features. Like the 72+, do more features!
A bit too much Mica
I love this pod, but there’s too much Mica now, it’s out of balance. It’s like a monologue of Mica with Rory and Chris just making the odd comment. I think it’s because Mica takes a long time to make a single point and his speaking style makes it hard to interject- littered with commas and no full stops. I like Mica on this pod but it needs to balance out more than it currently does.
Cracking podcast and makes an hour of the day at work pleasant
