One of the best podcasts ever !

Kirsty Young is a remarkable host. This show is brilliant.

Simply delightful

Such a simple premise but so many fantastic stories and confessions come of it. Kirsty is a wonderful interviewer with a gentle manner who illicits wonderful gems and never makes the show about her. It's the perfect antidote for today's overly-produced, and super fast paced society.

great shows, put some boxers on.

where did Kirsty Young go? The new lady is fantastic also. She’s s good replacement. Can we have Anthony Joshua , Chris Eubank, Nigel Benn, Michael Watson, Barry McGuigan, David Haye on? Let’s get some boxers on. thanks Mike Hills
