A great find
This is a fantastic podcast, just the right length for my bus journey to work, always entertaining and you learn stuff. Plus there's (virtual) booze. What's not to like? The hosts are genial and laconic and hit the right note with their eclectic mix of guests. Plus they seem to be Anglophiles, always a plus in my book.
Sophisticated, slick, but unpretentious.
Light, witty and warm weekly magazine programme presented by two humane, funny and smart presenters with a genuine charm. A lot of fun.
