Stop it with the umms

Really enjoy this podcast, but the ummm and ahhs between words are getting a tad annoying, perhaps listen back and you’ll hear what I mean chaps

Half-baked and unelucidating

I find this podcast, whilst raising interesting issues, doesn’t throw much light on them.
Half-baked opinions are trotted out and pseudo-surprise returned.

Stop....Saying...”Like”!

One of the male presenters is notorious for like, constantly like, always like saying “like” over-and-over!

But rant over - Apart from that I quite like this podcast. Interesting and current. Recommended to anyone.
