  • Refreshing Pushback

    Listen to the goings on in NI from Los Angeles. William does a great job and plenty of pushback on guests or listeners calling in to spin a tail, refreshing to say the least.

  • Excellent

    Living in Canada, I don’t hear much about the issues faced in Northern Ireland today. William Crawley does an excellent job of navigating between different speakers and opinions on important topics, somehow keeping his good humour the whole time. A great show.
