Rating is for when it’s Sophie Ridge presenting

Soooooo much better with Sophie Ridge. Please let her do it every day.

Missing negative feedback

Twice I have left slightly critical reviews of this show and both seem to have been removed or hidden.

Hardly surprising, really.

Really enjoy but stop butting in

I really enjoy this daily podcast and listen to it on my commute every day. But I find Dermot quite annoying to listen to as he constantly buts in when people are talking !!
