Faultless content but mad sound levels

Excellent concept that really fills a gap for those who are interested in UK politics (and are therefore exasperated by it), with terrific guests so far.

However, the dynamic range is so huge I have to ride the volume knob the whole way through (and it’s a long show). It's most noticeable when Forde and his interview subject are at vastly different levels, as was the case with Charles Clarke, but even within his pre-interview stand-up, you can get blasted with a sudden deafening punchline having cranked the volume up to hear the murmured set-up.

All this could be solved with a couple of clicks by running the whole show through a Limiter. It’s just talk, so narrowing the dynamic range won't spoil anyone’s enjoyment (the way it might with a symphony), and would remove a significant barrier to enjoying the fabulous content of the podcast.

Oh, and he could do with repeating the audience questions from the Q&A.

Five stars for content, minus two for audio production (seeing as it’s such an easy fix.)


If you have heard him on Talksport, then you will love this podcast. A great mix of comedy, giggles and politics!

Funny and switched-on.

A funny guy who is capable of talking to politicians on their own level due to his former life as a politico. Great listen - George Galloway was excellent, Farage less so. Waiting on Clarke - it's been nearly three weeks now...

Forde does an incredible impression of Galloway!
