Daisy Dunn • The Times UK Aug 13, 2023

"Each of the episodes in the series is a lovely mixture of archive and interview...What makes theirs such a good dynamic is that they don’t sound as though they’d ordinarily be friends. They have a good rapport, but it’s more inquisitive and respectful than chummy, so we’re saved the tedious chitchat that dominates so many other factual podcasts."
