Great mix of guests

This was recommended by chris and Rosie Ramsey while listening to there podcast, so once i was up to date with theres i started listening to this one, its very good, love the hosts its like there one of us general public people getting to interview there favourite celebrities. The guests every week are great, such a mix of famous faces in there, from Lennie James to Karl Pilkington, finding out about there career and the “plot twists” within them is great. Only started listening today and on to episode 4 with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. Noticed theres not many more left so hope theres many more episodes arriving in the future. Keep up the good work, yous seem lovely presenters from what i have heard so far!
