I absolutely love this podcast. Have returned to it after a months away and am pleased to hear a shift in tone and storytelling. This new Aussie guy Michael Safi is fantastic. More Pegasus-style episodes please!
Disappointed! Anyone paying attention to the ads?
Disappointed and confused. I LOVE this podcast! I voted for you and celebrated your well-deserved win. I know that if your journalist team were aware that your misogynistic advertising uses the term “mackrely mother in law” to advertise a mattress, there might be questions. (Yes, that means a woman who smells like oily fish. It’s hilarious.) Is anyone paying attention to what we are hearing in the US
Extremely impressed by Belarus Ryanair story. Had been following on many excellent podcasts from several countries which were quicker to the post and gave me updates I wanted. Getting this from you completed the picture.
So many revisited episodes
Why is this still going on? It’s been a week now and many of these episodes were not released that long ago.
