Annoying adverts spoiling the content

Fantastically interesting and enjoyable... real shame about annoying adverts that make you want to turn it off immediately. Surely a podcast of this nature could have clever less intrusive adverts?

Playful and instructive

It’s a lot of fun to learn with Gyles and Susie - this immediately jumps to the top of my fave podcast chart. Outstanding.

Baby boomers

Like Gyles, my husband and I were born in 1948, although we were both born in October, so we were delivered free of charge, care of the newly formed NHS.
We love the show and have got our 3 sons listening to it too.
Well done Susie and Gyles. I won’t add an emoji, apparently my sons think it’s hilarious that I always have to add one! Oh alright, just one 👏🏻
