A little unfair

Stephen is as good as ever as he has heaps of experience. Anoosh Chakelian is just as good as Helen Lewis for me.
I hate that this should matter but I find some English accents ‘difficult’. Unfortunately Helen has that very southern accent. Not her fault. Lots of people will dislike my Aberdonian mumble. I don’t like it.
On the plus side she brought up very important issues and is an excellent writer.

Good but not as good

As per recent reviews I agree Stephen Bush is excellent and even off on a tangent is always worth listening too. However it is not as good without Helen Lewis who frankly I could listen to all day.
I concur that there needs to be a a stronger and more experienced co presenter to balance the podcast. Still always worth a listen 👍🏻

Stephen is very good.

I enjoy this podcast and listen most weeks. SB’s views are nuanced, funny and insightful. I could listen to him all day.

Some of the guests are quite weak tho and I find myself skipping over flimsy 20-somethings with no grasp of modern history, ascribing extreme labels to quite ordinary MPs etc., etc.

I miss Helen too. She was great. They need a few more experienced commentators to give some heft.
