Sow NG ,

Decent podcast

some good discussions, with little pomp and puff. They are good reasoned discussions, though for this reason, some of the discussions scare the crap out of me, like the climate change discussion and some others.

Anamnua ,

Fantastic show (apart from Green antagonism)

Great show, love Eamon’s independent views, fantastic guests.

My only gripe is that he and his guests views on the Green movement politically are very reactive, depressing and short term.

Jaws4post ,

Very good show

Always been a fan of Eamon, I enjoy the diversity of the show, many different topics discussed.
