Fantastic companion piece

I love this! I think this is essential listening for Poldark fans. There is so much to discuss in these stories and the hosts provide great insights. I also love the differing male/female perspectives

Still hopeful

I was *loving* this podcast, and haven’t given up hope yet that the previous format will return.

I listened back to Barrett’s remarks at the end of the final podcast for season 4, in a effort to figure out what she meant... She said that for season 5, she and Robin will be trying something different, that there will still be an episode of the podcast for every episode of the TV series, and that she and Robin will “get back together” at the end of season 5 to do a recap of the entire TV series.

How she says all of this, however, is a *bit* confusing... I can only hope that the repeats recently of the “Masterpiece” podcast interviews are just serving as some sort of weekly placeholders (for lack of a better term), until Barrett and Robin return at the end of the season (?).

If so, then in the next episode of the “Mining Poldark” podcast, it would be *extremely* helpful (and would certainly put all the listeners at ease) if Barrett would (please) include a *reminder* in her intro or closing remarks, clarifying how this will all go.

Thank you, Barrett and Robin, for an otherwise delightful podcast!

Bring back Robin!

This is just Masterpiece! Where is the review and the banter. Should be zero stars.
