Love the insightful and humorous reporting

While I have not lived in the UK for 40 years, I still feel a strong connection to the UK and Europe. Loved the very informative and long drawn out reporting on Brexit from your team. Obtaining good reporting on the Covid-19 pandemic in the US is difficult as the majority of news organization are very focussed on the domestic situtation. I look forward to listening to your podcast while extreme social-distancing at home over the next months.

We learn with you (God is Love)

In America, we can see that the US & UK are having some earthquakes politically. You are my ancestral homeland, but I’ve never set foot in Belfast where my grandmother grew up in WW2 before she emigrated. If I have money someday I will visit Peru, Jerusalem, Alsace (other ancestors’ home), Istanbul (some of my ancestors’ home), Ethiopia, Ukraine, Belfast and Scotland, Wales and finally England. I hope to be a good American who respects people. In shallah (God willing)

Please stop talking over one another

ABSOLUTELY LOVE the insight!!! Soooo helpful for this Brit living in the States to keep across what’s happening. Thanks!

But... and I’m reluctant to say anything as iLOVE this podcast... it would be a tad easier to follow if you stopped talking over each other. I spend a lot of the time rewinding 15 secs to catch what one of you was saying. But perhaps it cause it is so good that I’m desperate not to miss a word.

Sometimes it seems the interruptions happen because you all (in the studio/on the line) know where the one talking is going... but we don’t always know the point until you finish.

Oh, and please explain what you mean by “klaxon”. Sometimes it seems to be a horn but not always.

Thank you though!
