Bugle is a hottie from history

New bugle is hotter than or Volcano or Florence Nightengale any day. Andy is brilliant and his pun runs are superb. Great quizzes. Very helpful homeschool curriculum. Bring back cryptic crossword.

Yes, it’s the news ... & so much more

Comedy? ✅ Politics? ✅ Culture? ✅

Andy (Zaltman), the permanent host, is quite funny and Intelligent in his own right; he and John Oliver co-hosted this show and are well matched. I've heard Andy improvise but not John so I can't compare their skill there.
......
Cricket stats have (had) pride of place - stunningly, some American thought it's been a long running discussion of rugby. (Rugby! I’m still stunned by that. They’re very different) Since Covid-19 Andy's been coping well without cricket.

Andy et. al. keeps “us” up-to-date with a British flair- and an Indian, Australian and sometime's a Kiwi's view. The US deserves a long critical look from the rest of the former British empire but no one is spared. Canada's missing; I guess they're generally too nice?

Listen and learn. We aren’t who we’ve been telling ourselves we are.

Better than ever

Been listening since the Andy & John days and I think the show is better than ever. At the beginning of the rotating co-hosts era the co-hosts were hit & miss but I’m really really liking the regulars now. I really like the edge the show has and now that they have voices like Nato, Nish, Alice, Hari ~~ it can be straight savage with minimal neoliberal nonsenses
