Please sort the sound

Great concept. Sound quality at Heston’s end sounds like he’s talking through a potato. Also repeat stories/facts that Jay seems to either forget/pretend he’s never heard before starting to grind. Needs work.

Really miss Heston

This used to be my favourite podcast. It’s pretty poor without Heston. I listen to the old ones. I have pretty much given up on this now

Great with Heston, not good without him

Don’t usually feel compelled to write reviews, but the pods without Heston haven’t been great, get him back ASAP. Seems half arsed
