André Langlois ,

Thanks Stu

Full of insights transferable to the non-comedy world.

LotusBlueTwo ,

Ok

I don’t know who he is but he kowtows to modern silly politics where we are supposed to accept other people’s mental delusions. Is also of the type that has been programmed to believe that being a member of the prevailing culture of this island is somehow being privileged - really ? The reverse is true if you do some basic research. His whining about parenthood is yawn - if kids are hassle don’t have more of them. It’s not heroic. However, some good guests redeem this show, to whom you ask good questions so stop cutting them off.

A Sanctuary

I adore this podcast; it’s my safe space. Stu’s effortless conversation style, plus the chance to hear from some of the most insightful brains of our era, is a totally winning combination. Come for the comedy tips, stay for the life lessons! THANK YOU!!
