A perfectly proportioned and varied Podcast
This is a great podcast...the guests/interviewees are varied, always interesting and Simon's interviewing style is relaxed. Averaging around 30 minutes, it is amazing how much informative chat is squeezed in. A really good listen.
This podcast has become as much a part of my day as breathing and blinking. It's consistently entertaining. Can't recommend it highly enough.
