Love the interviews
This is a great podcast and I love listening to all the interviews and Ali’s very strange jokes please keep going
Ali speaks over female experts
I’m listening to the episode about Don’t Worry Darling and I would love to hear Clarisse Loughrey’s expert opinion, but Ali has spoken for 90% of the time and if he asks her a question he then interrupts, disregards or rewords/reinterprets what she just said. It’s really uncomfortable to listen to. Why does he even has guests?
Ali might just be one of the best interviewers of all time, the guests he has in are fantastic and the questions are even better. Keep up the good work Mr Plumb!
