Louis Theroux

Genius ‘interviewing’. Perfect listening.

Jardy J Rose ,

Love this podcast!

Not sure how I only just came to this as I am a massive Ed Gamble fan and and even bigger fan of James! It’s just brilliant and I find myself laughing out loud on the train every morning. I would love to be a guest, I always imagine what my choices would be!

Splash Walker ,

So full of food knowledge

Started listening to this because it would be funny. What I didn’t expect was the level of knowledge from most of the guests and James and Ed Mostly the younger ones. Older ones don’t seem to be adventurous and don’t go to Joe’s pallet for any advice
