  • On the Beach travel company

    I booked a package holiday with On The Beach thinking they would deal with the flight, hotel etc. Unfortunately because Ryanair ‘do not have a commercial relationship with On the Beach’ it was impossible for me to access the flight. In the end I ended up paying for 2 flights which I cannot access. How can this Company be legal?

  • Great content, stupidly loud background music

    Great content when you can hear it, half the time you can’t because of this constant elevator music playing in the background. more

  • Distracting music

    Why is it necessary to have music running through the entire podcast? It’s too loud and distracting, and masks some of the dialogue. Simon knows his stuff, and I’d much prefer to listen to what he’s got to say than this inane lift music. It’s not necessary: get rid of it!
