Funny and Relevant
Really funny podcast that touches on meaningful (and not so meaningful) topics. Well worth a listen and I am really looking forward to the next episode.
With their natural conversational style, Will Young and Chris Sweeney make great inquisitors in the nicest possible way! Very enjoyable listen, I will look forward to hearing the views they elicit from their guests while enjoying their banter. Great idea for a podcast series.
