Solid content; don’t try so hard to be funny
A useful podcast with informative content and knowledgeable guests. Emma John has terrific enthusiasm, I just wish she would stop trying so hard to be funny.
Brilliant podcast, irritating host
Very funny at times, great guests. Emma John is deeply, deeply annoying. Would be five stars, if not for her ability to be banal and irksome.
