More Marriott and Purves Please

The chats with the journalists are definitely worthwhile. But I’m afraid Messrs Aronavaitch and Finklestein have perfect voices for print journalism. I don’t understand why Times Radio persists with parading the lugubrious and nasal voices of Danny Finkelstein and David Aronavitch, and in any case all-male combinations should be avoided. The duo have great intellects and write well, but they are not suited to podcasts and radio. Is it not obvious that James Marriott and Libby Purves are the true stars of this podcast?

Love Matt Chorley and the Red Box

Listening to Matt Chorley and his guest columnists makes my life slightly but nonetheless perceptibly better.

Can’t recommend highly enough!

The highlight of my day! Having worked in politics in a previous life but now living abroad, it’s so refreshing to be able to listen to such informed, intelligent discussions. The columnist panel is always interesting - particularly with David Aaronovitch and Danny Finkelstein. Matt Chorley holds it all together effortlessly. His passion for politics is contagious and his insights bring a new way of looking at things.
