Best presenters, I’ve been listening for a long time, keep them please.

I didn’t subscribe to the TLS for political opinion. more

  • Thoroughly OK

    The hosts are charming and seem to have good chemistry which helps, even though it is only on clear display during the five or so minute intros. more
