James Adkin ,

A great listen

I came here after listening to Jay on the Joe Marler show

Really enjoy this series, just don’t expect not to feel hungry if you listen!

A. L. Tomlin ,

My favourite podcast

A wide range of guests, and jay in his nonchalant excellence, is always well researched, but naturally. His genuine interest and knowledge in his guests is something that often misses the mark in podcasts. Nothing is forced. Bravo.

My favourite podcast

I love out to lunch. It’s like overhearing a fascinating conversation over lunch. I look forward to the next episode. Keep up the good work.
