Benefits of virus

Due to lockdown I have found the wonderful world of podcasts and so glad I did. Sue Perkins is wonderful and have now listened to all the episodes. To go from laughter to tears and back again marks a great programme.

Wonderfully uplifting and thought provoking in equal measure

New to the world of podcasts but the episode with Sue and Michael Pennington/Johnny Vegas took me through the extremes of laughter and sadness in just over an hour. Left me wanting more.
