Informative and Enjoyable
The format is smart, the information relvant and interesting. Perhaps the best "integrated" general purpose ag news cast I have found. Although I am not a Brit, the global ag ulility is good.
This is not an exciting podcast. No music. No give-aways. No comedians. This is an informative podcast covering issues facing British farmers. I'm not from the U.K., but I like to listen to their problems and solutions. It gives a broad look at agricultural issues, from the farmer, the shopper, the environmentalist, the legislator. I love listening.
This is a fun podcast
I listen to this all the time. The stories are interesting, even to someone here in the US. Also helps me understand Britain better.
