  • Huw episode

    I’ve always enjoyed listening to Jane Garvey so this is a nice go to podcast. The Huw Edwards episode..what to think…is he taking the piss or just very pompous? He does not come off well either way. Now I understand that slight snarl he has on the 10 is perhaps contempt for everyone watching.
