  1. Fantastic, apart from Eric Joyce. WTF?

    Top tip: if you’re going to talk for 10 mins, then it’s useful to HAVE A POINT!!!!!! I seriously had no clue what on earth he was droning on about. I can only think that his inclusion was a political decision. If it was, then it was a mistake.

    As for the rest of the podcast, it was a refreshing and eclectic compendium of opinions, ideas and great music.

    Very thought-provoking, very entertaining and absolutely great listening.

    Best. Ungagged. Ever. (apart from Eric Joyce).

  2. Fantastic. Lovely to see Teresa doing something passionate and hearing her talking. She was my favourite part. Such a wonderful soul. Loved what she was saying.
    Namaste.
