Unlike the others

This is a weird podcast, Iain is like the wise father to two millennials which makes for an unusual listening experience at times but it’s grown on me. I like how Alastair goes off on flights of intellectual fancy about Proust, Kundera and a whole lot else while Finn is often silent but gets animated about Ireland or Taylor swift. It’s quirky and chatty and I do learn quite a bit. Iain is more the voice of generation x, which I appreciate, especially his attempts to next nuance into debates about offence and political correctness.

Poor audio

The discussions can be interesting if it can be heard. The audio is egregious. I like much of what Iain says, balanced and incisive. Alastair seems a bright enough chap, but has the negative and defeatist outlook of life that commends him to work at the Foreign Office. The other panelist is a young lady whose name escapes me. A reflection of the impact and contribution to the discussions. Can best be summed up as the poor cousin to The Spectator.

Off-mic

Hard to concentrate on the content when it sounds like they’ve left their microphone in the next-door neighbour’s kitchen.
