Okay okay, first you have your British Railways “Sale”, then 2 months later you’ve got a British Railways “Strike”. I’m quite confused with this business plan. Adams moostach has yet to be shared with your Podcasters. You need to put a face inside that little gray box showing “Host”. Great programming, always informative and educational. Thanks

My Favorite Podcast

I’m a longtime devotee of your show and just want to say Thank You! You got me through COVID with your team’s ability to stay ahead of the curve.
Here in America, our media are so commercialized it struggles to navigate the big stories. The BBC truly is the gold standard in electronic journalism.

Bring back Brexitcast

So good to have Brexitcast back with the old gang. I listen to you from the USA and suspend listening when it is “just” Newscast.
