Dreadful

Usually like LT - needs to reconsider his guests if I’m to reconsider listening to his podcasts🤞

Nice guy

I like Louis - he asks probing questions in a gentle, self-deprecatory way that others don't. At times his manner does become a bit clichéd and reminds me of the Dead Ringers impression of him. His best interviews are with his friends like Adam Buxton when he is less cautious. Audio quality can vary - sort out the squeaky chair Louis!

Rose McGowan

I have just finished listening to the latest episode with Rose McGowan. She is an inspiration.
