Lovely listen!

Really enjoy the guests, hearing about their lives and behind the scenes! Would recommend a listen.

Annoying woman presenter

Painful to listen to her inane drivel and annoying voice. And dissecting your guest afterwards is downright rude, even with copy and pasted compliments.

Joe Gilgun

Always loved watching this guy, but this interview with him has just confirmed that he is brilliant. Amazingly open and frank.
