Mark Drakeford Podcast needs Remastering

Usually really enjoy the podcast, think that Nick typically gets a lot from the interviewee, although his line of questioning Rishi Sunak about race was a bit dodgy and awkward. I think it was completely well intentioned but just not done so well. The audio on the Mark Drakeford one, however, is not great. The stereo nature of it just comes through strangely on headphones. I understand it’s a new format etc. Just something to look out for in the future

How the Today programme could sound

By the end of every podcast I understand better the person being interviewed and what they believe in - even if it’s the opposite to mine. Great questions and the guests are allowed to speak and that allows us to respect the reasons for differing views. What a positive difference from a Nick Robinson’s twin brother on the Today programme whose only aim is to nail the politician and catch them out. In doing so we the listener hear nothing daily but the presenters ego. The Nick on this podcast should surely be allowed a slot as a presenter on the Today programme to replace his egotistical twin !!

Johnstone

Your clock is ticking you have few months and I don’t believe he can do it he is actor with specific personality disorder
I am waiting and watching this roulette, your odds are stacked against you
You are liar and your chronology will not be wiped away rather your words will be the poison that destroys you
