Very good show

I’m freaky enjoying this show and appreciate the quick podcast uploads. Anton is self deprecating and funny and a very good interviewer. I’ve switched from Rte 1 on a Sunday morning as it’s more thorough and less censoring by the host. I particularly like the “what’s going on” slot Overall a great show.
