New listener

First heard about the podcast when it was mentioned on the Avtalk podcast. So I subscribed and have listened to a handful of episodes in the car whilst travelling the country from my home in Suffolk. As someone who is not a pilot or employed in the aviation business it is wonderful to hear a podcast that makes you feel involved and on a par with the presenters. I love the blend of humour, stories, news and facts that is in tune with my interest in aviation. Great podcast that I would recommend to anyone interested in aviation.

Improved a lot

I 've only recently started listening to this podcast. The first episode I listenied to was the one with Ian & Jason from AvTalk -Aviation Podcast. It's nice to hear at UK Pocast on avaiton rather the too American centric of other podcasts. I have also listend tot he first two epsides and another more recent one and the thing that strikes me the improvement from the early episodes. The presenters Carlos, Nev, Armando & Matt do a good job also some interesting guests which make this podcast good to listen to.
