  • Host - please listen

    I want to love this podcast but the host keeps talking over the top of the guests - in the episode reviewing the film Blonde he is extremely rude and never lets the female guest finish her sentence - it’s so annoying and distracting from the otherwise interesting content.

  • Can't believe it

    This is a fabulous podcast for anyone who loves movies, literature, poetry, drama and the visual arts. Try this for movie criticism, what's new in music, all the prize-winners you could ever want, interviews with great writers and artists, and all with the BBC's expected elan. The perfect sentence of podcasts.

  • Great to hear

    Although I rarely go to a theatre, it’s nice to have a wonderful word of mouth or a second opinion on shows. It’s good to have an arts show for books and theatre, to see what’s out there.

  • Variety of interviews

    Good cultural review show, particularly so when Tom Sutcliffe is in the host's chair. He is so engaged and seems to be enjoying himself, and that is delightful.
