Just give us dead ringers

I love this podcast, but I wish that they did multiple podcasts, one for each comedy piece, or just did the podcast solely on dead ringers. The news quiz is all right, and not a bad show, but if you are going to have multiple different types of shows, just make multiple podcasts. Asides from that, I can’t complain. Just A Minute is quite funny, but the real weak link is definitely the Museum of Curiosities. This podcast is just boring, and, at its best, is an ear sore. Though I love some of the options, I really would be better if you either got rid of or just separated some of the more boring shows.
Thanks!

Cannot wait for Friday's to come

Genuinely FUNNY podcasts are so hard to come by, and I downloaded one because Hugh Dennis rocks and this definitely didn't disappoint! I cannot stop laughing!

The podcast it's like a british Jon Stewart, discussing on current british affairs with great humor and sarcasm. I cannot wait for every Friday to come so I can get a new episode
