    Mr Robinson is brilliant but cant help noticing that he’s interviewing B & C-listers for quite a while now. Perhaps he’s run out of all the worthwhile and interesting politicians.

    The Roger Hallam interview was exceptional. I thought that Roger gave an honest account of his feelings and aims and you were able to maintain a high level discussion for the listener. I work in the Oil and Gas Industry and I was hoping for a balanced interview. I almost sensed that you enjoyed the tussle with the wordplay during the podcast but that did not distract from the need to treat all viewpoints with respect. Thank you.

    This was such an eye-opening episode. I’m not a member of extinction rebellion and have only followed their work in the mainstream news. I am however a supporter of net zero. As the episode progressed, I found it slightly disturbing in its extremism. Nick’s arguments had merit. Rational argument must be a part of climate change.

    I am astounded that Nick kept his cool when “interviewing” Roger Hallam. How this man has managed to persuade people to join his civil resistance is beyond me. Claiming climate change is considerably worse than the holocaust and Cambodia and the genocide in the Congo is sickening. more
