Richard Pryor podcast. It was like listening to the cast of Grange Hill. Is this aimed at the yoof market? Levels of knowledge appalling and typical BBC group-think PC virtue signalling, and tokenism.
This is truly fascinating conversation, I love learning about the other sides of such household names. The Richard Pryor one was pretty heartbreaking.
So as not to spoil the Roald Dahl episode, I’ll just say that after all the info, I still voted the other way!
Can’t wait for more!
Mother Teresa? Evil or Genius
Absolutely love this podcast. Russell Kane is both hilarious and smart... excellent combination. Can I suggest you delve into the live of Mother Teresa? Would love to hear Russels thoughts on this 👍🙏
