Very good (too many Tories tho)
As a former UK resident and EU citizen, I find this podcast very informative and good fun. It definitely chops some trees in this impermeable forest that is all that is to know about Brexit. As much as I understand that the Conservative leader race is important for the outcome of Brexit, it feels like every week a Tory MP is attending, be it an English or a Dutch one (the pm of my homeland). Would love to hear something from someone like Magid Magid to contrast some opinions.
Greetings from the Netherlands
It is always good fun to hear your take on the news. A little bit of humour now and then. But always informative. I particularly like the way Adam’s mind works.
Lost it’s way...
This was genuinely a good podcast, when it gave quick fire, humorous and in depth commentary on the Brexit process. Now it’s just a series of shallow interviews with mostly uninteresting people without the charisma of the original 4. Also, Adam was always the light comic relief, a foil for the journalism of the others. Now he runs the show there really is nothing going on.
