Entertaining, funny and intellectually stimulating

I’ve been listening since episode one and I have no plans of stopping!! Rosie and Bob manage to bring a blend of insightful analysis and levity to some fantastical subjects. I could listen to each episode multiple times and still hear new, interesting points that I may have missed the first time around.

Brilliant!

Been a fan of Diane for a long time and for some reason just got around to listening to this! It’s so well researched and the discussion is wonderful. There hasn’t been a new episode in 5 months so I fear I’ve maybe binged them too quickly :) PS Any chance of the show being uploaded to Spotify in the future?

Fun, charming, insightful

I wish more analysis tackled theme instead of message. This podcast has clued me into art works I never would’ve considered.
