Really good debate

This is an excellent podcast. If you want to listen to some grown up discussion on issues which are really important (like life!) then this is for you.
The best value is when there is a moment when you have your mind changed as a result of listening!
Outstanding

If you can get to HTLGI festival in Hay, go.
If you can’t, listen to this. Ideally do both.
