Brilliant!

So mind consuming and subtle. The hosts and guest are very nice and friendly too!

The "plot twist" is that there isn't one

I have listened to several episodes and felt for the presenters, clearly out of their depth, as they attempted to identify anything that might qualify as a plot twist in the interviews.

Recommended but not for me

Came here after listening to Rosie and Chris Ramsey and the advert they had for it. Only got 15minutes in to an episode. Not for me
