Customer Reviews

It went because it's currently off air

Unlike podcasts created by people in their bedroom - the BBC Podcasts come from radio shows and this is no exception. The reason the Start the Week podcast isn't currently available is because it isn't currently being made/broadcast by the BBC. Although I think the new series starts soon.

Utterly brilliant

Perfect balance of high-brow and populist. Don't go to work without it.

Eclectic quality

Andrew Marr proves he has a voice for radio to match his face for radio - a great host of a wonderful mix of guests and topics. Recommended.
