This is a great podcast with some excellent interviews and topics, I’ve been enjoying cooking to it whilst there is no football on over the summer. Only problem I have is the lack of care with fidelity. The host has poor mic technique and the interviews over satellite often have delay which annoys me cause I’m an audio geek.
