  • Huge fear of being cancelled!

    Very informative and in part, funny podcast. The concept is fascinating but it is ruined by the comedians fear of being cancelled!! Richard Prior the woman beating druggie was a genius but Tolkien was evil because he didn’t any people of colour in his novels?!? Everyone is so careful of saying what they really think so any outcome is deduced from fear of being thought to be racist!!

  • Loved this Podcast

    Was very pleased when I noticed a new episode and series had begin but it seems now that the only evil argument presented is to do with race and sexism. Yes it can be a valid and important argument but is the target of the podcast only chosen when they discover any form racism or sexism. Please go back to selecting your subjects and presenting fascinating and shocking evidence and get a panel who don’t turn on one ism, woke is now the Bain of society

  • Ok

    Ok if you want to hear about Russell Masterbating and living in a council house. Also too much left wing excusing of the excesses of their idols. more
