More diversity please!

Love the insight provided, would love more diverse guests (not just better gender balance, but more commentors from different cultural backgrounds)

** Unmissable **

Sebastian Payne et al are brilliant and I look forward to their discussions every week.

While maintaining a bite-sized format - 35 minutes is usually the maximum - these FT staffers consistently provide insight and commentary that’s better than you can find anywhere else.

For instance, the breakdown of the Supreme Court legal review process on the proroguing of Parliament - from the two suits against it, its justiciability, and what might happen next - was both informative and easily understandable for someone without a legal background. The clarity of that preview made the landmark ruling that came out the next week that much more surprising and impressive given how far it went beyond the expectations of the FT’s well-informed legal commentators.

Well contextualized reporting reminds us that we are experiencing important history every single day. I thank the FT for helping make the events of each week unmissable. If you follow and/or are interested in British politics, do yourself a favor and tune in.

Let the panelists speak (!)

Why won't the chair/host, Sebastian, allow the expert panelists to contribute more ? He often comes across as a bit of an excitable, Tigger-ish ego tripper.
