This podcast is my FAVE! Found it by complete chance & it has changed my life, especially over recent months when I’ve needed something to focus on & take my mind off things... I flipping love these guys SO much ❤️ Keep ‘em coming...!

Great show. Patchy guests

I love the show, I love the format. The guests can be a bit hit and miss though.
If you’re going to have Americans, at least ensure they’ve listened to a podcast or two. You shouldn’t have to explain the premise to people who can’t be bothered to do the research, on air since basically you are lifting their profile for them. It’s boring for us and makes me hate them with a passion.
Pop stars are universally as dull as ditchwater and thick as mince.
There are so many highs. Corey Taylor was a recent tour de force. But then there’s those personality vacuums Pete Doherty and Anthony Jeselnik who really should be dropped in a mineshaft and buried.
Those aside, this is one of my favourite podcasts.
Also, get Mo Gilligan on (unless you have and I missed it).

Dame Claudia winkleman

The Claudia winkleman ep was one of the best yet, it was everything I imagined and more. There’s been so many awesome guests and very few that have disappointed.
I will echo what others have said about the American guests being weaker than the British, some don’t really get our sense of humour so struggle to make decent conversation which at times make them a tough listen, but thankfully the guys manage to keep the show rolling without any help from the guest.
despite a few hiccups in America it’s Still 5 big fat stars from me⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
keep up the good work fellas
