  • OMG I'm begging you to replace this presenter's voice. Madeleine Finlay is shrill, hard, pounding. It's very obvious that the interviewee is not present (possibly being prerecorded) and the interviewer's unempathic BANG BANG BANG questioning style shows she has no interest in the subject other than wretching out her written questions in the space between the interviewee's answers. The BBC used to do microphone training… maybe the Guardian is saving on costs. Horrid to listen to.

  • I think one of the issues is that the people that have "bad" dogs are the irresponsible ones who will not learn or take dogs to classes or care. The owners who will take up these course are the ones who will be more careful and responsible. Very sad. Some people shouldn't own animals.

  • Octopus farming

    The podcast focused on the emotional question if “how intelligent is an octopus”. This is one question yes, but my questions would be “what does an octopus eat”? And “where will that food come from”. If we have to send out a fishing fleet to catch 10tonnes of fish to produce 1tonne of octopus, how does that improve our food chain? more
