Love it

I love the content but mostly I’m here for this beautiful cast of characters. These are actually my favorite people to have living /talking in my head.

Can’t Stop Listening!

I absolutely adore this podcast. Not only do I enjoy the journalism, the topics, the discussion, the though provoking probes, etc., but I have also become emotionally invested in the cast members. I sincerely enjoy tuning in to hear more of their interpersonal banter, witty quips and each of their individual view points shared in an intellectual, yet consistently humorous fashion.
So glad I stumbled upon this podcast. Thank you for producing!

The from demise of the cinema industry

OMG! This episode was the most boring of the WIRED UK'S podcasts...EVER! All the hosts sounded like they didn't want to be there. Take some tips from your American cousins and liven it up a bit...or a lot!
