Just amazing

I look forward to every episode of the Queen Pod, the in depth knowledge of all the contributors is amazing

The Tim Stafell episode (7) is very touching and takes you back to the early Smile days and Tim’s own journey. Very interesting bloke and great light bulb joke

I can’t wait for the Sheer Heart Attack episodes
