    Content very good, obviously, Jay is better connected than TFL. But he prides himself on impartiality so surprised that along comes a sponsor (in the episode I listened to) which kind of blows that moral theory out of the water. I contacted Jay as a Cancer nutrition wellness account for a plug, but got a no no. Only found out soon after that he was involved with Ryan (crowd funded chap) Riley. more

  • Simply superb

    Listening to this podcast is like sitting in a restaurant and eavesdropping intently to the people sitting next to you. Jay captures the joy of eating out and proves that when you supply someone with good food, only good conversation can follow. He asks intelligent and curious questions of his guests to which they respond and share chapters of their lives gladly. Mr Rayner really is the perfect lunch companion and thankfully he takes us listeners along with him.

    I’ve gotten through the backlog and enjoyed almost every minute of it! Being a listener from the States I still enjoy hearing about the restaurants and food out of my reach.
