Good podcast agree about the interrupting

I enjoy the conversation and how relaxed it is and the succession analysis is great. Like others I wish they wouldn’t all interrupt each other so much, I think the guy and one of the women really like the sound of their own voices. As a Brit, the guy comes across as a posh English man used to getting to talk over everyone and a tad obnoxious.

Interruption-fest slightly spoils a decent podcast

Very informative and generally enjoyable show but the presenters tendency to interrupt each other can make it a slightly tense listen. When someone starts saying something you're never quite sure whether they'll be given the time to complete their point

The interrupter frequency:
Felix > Cathy > Jordan

Ref; REF! ,

Curate’s Egg

Anna Szymanski makes this podcast listenable. She’s excellent and provides counterpoint to what would be a leftie love-in, otherwise. Felix is knowledgable but desperate to be the smartest person on the pod. He continually shuts down Anna because of his political preferences which fractures the flow.
