  • Pod comes out to late in day. Chris is excellent, Adam needs to calm down.

    Great podcast. Chris is great with open honest insight and the latest news from ‘SW1’. My only issues are why is it released so late in the day? It’s nearly 11pm now… and still no podcast drop. By morning it could be out of date. 6pm would be a great time. Also, Adam. His random ramblings and humour is just a bit annoying at times. The weekend shows are so so good. Naturally warm, informative and just a lovely chat.

  • Great car listening

    I regularly follow. My big disappointment is that all my WhatsApp messages going back to 4 January 2023 have gone unacknowledged.
