Good but has slipped

A very good show from Election Cast to Brexit cast. The show was always factual and had a snap to it. I believe it is now on the downward spiral! To many “guests” to much of old materials.
Please,please can you all get back to the high ground you had over the last 2 years or so?
Still listening, but not so No1 on my list.

Please do not stop

I don’t understand the negative comments. This is a relevant podcast I listen everyday and enjoy the serious and lighter side of the programme. Keep it up really needed in these times. Very pleased it’s everyday. Well done
