I may be in the minority but…

I’m pleased the free podcast is snappier. Latterly I fell away from the old podcast as it increasingly leant on the witter part. Very enjoyable indeed. Embrace change, grumblers .

Blue McEvilly ,

Disappointed

Not a patch on the old podcast, the ads are infuriating and too frequent.

Benny_Blanco ,

Love the podcast HATE the app

It refuses to play. ‘Unable to play. Try again later’ consistently. Try on Spotify, works instantly!
