All

I’ve gotten through the backlog and enjoyed almost every minute of it! Being a listener from the States I still enjoy hearing about the restaurants and food out of my reach. I can only hope to hear the bonus episodes sometime without having to pay(there is advertising for that). Love show, please keep up the good work Jay!

Really enjoyable - mostly

Up to the Jimmy Carr episode, I think I had enjoyed every one of these interviews and eagerly looked forward to the download on Mondays. It sounded from the interview that Jay does not like Jimmy Carr and I can only imagine how uncomfortable it must have felt having lunch together. It was certainly uncomfortable listening to it. Hopefully Jay will stick to people whose company he enjoys and I can go back to looking forward to these podcasts, instead of squirming in my seat and wishing it would stop.

Pure joy

Two intelligent, interesting people having a wonderful meal with each other is the simplest form of joy. I look forward to being a fly on the wall every week.
