I came across Alix Fox through a podcast called Modern Mann (very good, lighthearted and and an easy listen).
Alix Fox gives an informed light insight "none seedy" on all things interment. It's a comfortable listen that doesn't feel like a top shelf magazine. This is proven by the fact that the Guardian is publishing this. Alix your great! These podcast Great!
An inspired, respectful, intriguing, breaking-new-ground podcast. Thank you for making it.
Alix and the team at the Guardian have produced some of the most respectful pieces of journalism on some very difficult subjects. The podcast is informative yet caring, serious yet fun. Alix's rapport with the interviewees is really apparent, and the way the subjects are tackled is great. Hands down, an award winner.
