WAIT A MINUTE……Here’s Mickey.

Old habits die hard, especially for those of us at a certain age. Listening to WUTM podcast whilst working is a pretty old habit but recently I tend to let it drift in and out of my subconciousness. Sean sounds a little perkier today I thought as I got stuck into my emails…..WAIT A MINUTE…..can it be? YES, hurrah, it's Mickey. Now I am fully engaged, WUTM has my full attention and this calls for a slice of cake to celebrate.

Extremely negative outlook

If you enjoy waking up to a bloke and his guests being really negative about the economy and business in general this is for you.

It doesn’t surprise me that a financial BBC podcast has such a negative outlook, but it’s just disappointing because this podcast has potential.

There are plenty of positive stories out there. I’d recommend showcasing some of them.

I tried to persevere but have had no choice but to unsubscribe.
