The dramas and plays are great but the app itself could be so much better. The app only has a small number of radio 4 dramas for some reason, whereas if you go on the website you get the full catalogue played over the course of the week. I don’t know why they select just a few for the app.
Hit and miss
Episode quality is very hit and miss...
A very mixed bag
The last few weeks podcasts have been dire, some earlier ones were very good, to invest listening time to this on a regular basis it really needs to have a consistency. If I had only heard the last two then it would already be deleted. Come on BBC you have £5 billion in fees try harder.
