Great content, scripted delivery

Graham and Ray are real pros digging into fascinating substance with clear expertise and integrity. This mix of private sector insight and social welfare considerations is invaluable to hear. My only criticism is that they’re very clearly reading from a script so the conversation is halting and stilted and makes it difficult to feel engaging. You have to force yourself to pay attention as if you’re reading rather than listening to a discussion. I can understand why they want to choose their words carefully - presumably to avoid legal risks around these sensitive contemporary cases - but it’d be better if they could handle that on the fly and with editing rather than seemingly reading most of the podcast.
