Customer Reviews

GC Gavin ,

Time to call it a day.

Unfortunately this podcast has lost its way and perhaps run its course. I have been a dedicated follower since its inception through Elections and Brexit. I flew 2000miles to attend the special live recording of Brexitcast in broadcasting house on the eve of Brexit . Afterwards I held out hope that the podcast could continue and retain its informative yet casual format of discussing current affairs. Sadly I am disappointed.
Over the years Chris Mason & Adam Fleming‘s baby was gradually pulled apart. It became the Katya and Laura show which at first I didn’t like but it found its place with Chris, Adam, Laura and Katya making a great team, along with Dino, which obvious had natural chemistry. Unfortunately the current show has no chemistry and is just done. The BBC had for a little while the No1 podcast to be proud of but whoever calls the shots behind the scenes over reached and has destroyed it. Nigella Lawson and Nicky Clarke were the final nail in the coffin. For goodness sake BBC get you act together.
