A multi-podcast listener

I listen to about six podcasts to do with contemporary royalty, yes really! Each one has a different point of view. I like learning from them all including Scobie. He has his niche—keep it up.

Overtly biased.

I found this podcast failed to provide any reliable information because the Podcaster displays a clear bias in favour of the Sussexes. Not worth listening to.

A Fountain of Misinformation

Every episode has false facts. The latest episode went on and on about the Queen and Philip’s picture with Archie at his christening. They didn’t even attend. They need an actual royal expert. I’m out!
