The Great Triad of British Podcasts

This show is a nice addition to The Delingpod and The Weekly Skeptic. Be gentle on Delingpole. I’m on his team. Toby is fighting the good fight even if he’s a bit spongy on some things (OFCOM). And you are nicely squeezed in the middle, offering comic relief, keeping the triad together. Keep it up. Sincerely, “an American listener”.
