Insanely funny

I love comedy and when my favourite comedians and the king of podcasts (Adam Buxton) make a podcast life doesn't get much better, it a shame that there is advertisements, but somethings can’t be helped.

Chris062828 ,

Too inconsistent without explanation

Episodes will just come and go, sometimes months in between. And he’ll never explain why or let you know. Unfortunately for him this means that you leave it out of your listening cycle and I tend to forget it exists. Podcasting is very regimented, everyone releases on their day, each week. So someone who releases at random isn’t going to be as successful

It’s a lovely warm hug for the ears!

Adam’s podcast is one of favourites! He’s funny, insightful and it’s the only podcast where I actually love the adverts! His style of interviewing is relaxed and a nice warm hug for the ears!!!
