Phrasing

The presenter (Olly Mann) said that Hamas attacked Israel and Israel 'besieged' Gaza. 20,000 Gazans have been killed by Israel. Israel did a lot more than besiege. Words matter. Olly's phrasing is incredibly disrespectful to Palestinians.

Great stuff

Always an enjoyable listen. Brings light on issues that otherwise i’d be none the wiser on and presents it in an accessible and well balanced fashion. Maybe you don’t agree with all viewpoints but you see where the arguments are coming from and thats more that can be said for a lot of shows of this nature. Keep up the good work, and bring back John!
