    Long time listener, always interesting and enjoyable, however in recent months I am finding the show has become a bit of a struggle becoming too one sided with no contrasting views and real debate. For election period may benefit from an additional voice and perspective

  • A very unbalanced view

    This should be called ‘The Rest is Labour’. Highlights the problem with politics, as their more interested in making little jabs and snide remarks, than sharing an objective view. They are highly articulate (as you’d expect), with some useful points, but that’s about it. A missed opportunity to show the mature side of politics.

    The American version is pretty lame. Nothing compelling or insightful and predictable one sided views. Many better political podcasts.
