Really enjoyable but

I’m no Top G bloke but can we have some proper man tone and not this whimsical cheeky chappy stuff all the while. Gravitas: there’s nothing wrong with it y’know.

Lost its way

Used to be good in the Brexitcast days, now it’s just vaguely annoying with lots of hahaha jokes and a lack of any serious analysis (it’s like a radio version of the One Show). This podcast is eclipsed by the Newsagents and Today in Focus.

Misleading

Chris, please stop parroting minimum ‘safety’ levels, from the government messaging. There’s no mention of the word ‘safety’ in the bill, it’s NHS unions who are -in part- striking because there aren’t daily minimum service levels on non-strike days, which they point out is unsafe for patients! Thanks.
