Reasons to be Cheerful / Just Brilliant

Congratulations on the 5th Anniversary and on your brilliant choice of guest for the celebratory episode. Absolutely love Marina and her journalism.

Your episodes are so worth listening to and I still enjoy the T shirt.

Thanks so much.

Used to be brilliant

I really loved the old podcast; it was the first ever podcast I listened to and was definitely 5 stars. I just wish when it came to an end, Ed and Geoff bowed out gracefully as what is left is just banal chat, mainly about Ed’s quirks and going over old ground. Maybe I’ll catch up on all of the missed episodes someday but it’s now well down my list of podcasts to listen too. Two stars for being better than Ball’s and Osbourne.

Today show 🤦

Another moron with voice fry guest. Why do you people think i want to listed to some vocal fry/voice fry moron. They sound so dumb as opposed to intelligent as they’ve convinced themselves they sound
