Great podcast

Incredibly interesting and has made me subscribe to the rag. Solid work from AHM and a wonderful insight to how it’s made and what they choose. Now reading the mag, it’s a brilliant companion and interesting to see the same old names popping up (Udi Sheleg in the latest issue)

An excellent companion podcast

Subscribe to this excellent podcast and then subscribe to the magazine. As the last episode said they like to “bang on” but that’s just a phrase to indicate dogged investigative journalism and there’s little enough of that around these days. A British institution, long may it continue.

Tremendous podcast

This podcast as well as the magazine (Private Eye) is a fantastic way of keeping up with our best international friend and ally. It is a fantastic podcast, a “must listen,” and the magazine a “must buy!”
