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.

Very insightfuk ,

Very enjoyable, keep it up

I very much enjoyed the space episode! It was so interesting and such fun to listen to!

Loumcw ,

Yawn. Go hide your pension.

Shocking that he’s still so stuck in his ‘we won’ vote, that he even needs to make the Russia report a ‘fake news’ thing by the vehicle of a suitably selected guest. How about some actual real critique? Sell out. Pathetic.
