Highlight of the week

I love Olly Man, he's just on the line of being unlikable at but he's so lovely. The contributers and all smart. It's a good show. Could even be a wee bit longer IMO :)

Tapping

The horrific, non stop tapping on the latest episode is so annoying. It’s like water torture!

Excellent but...

The show is well thought out and the opinions expressed are insightful from the contributors. I only have one issue, and that’s Felicity Capon. Whilst I value her opinions, she does say far too many filler words that it becomes annoying. You could make how many times she says “sort of” into a drinking game.
