James Marriot • The Times UK Sep 23, 2022

"...the carousel of egos is well greased. Everyone gets to have their say and the 45-minute episodes are roomy enough for all of these competing voices to sound natural rather than the too-obvious result of backroom HR wrangling. Webb holds the whole thing together with self-deprecating charm. In fact the whole show has an atmosphere of unfakeable warmth and friendliness."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Sep 3, 2022

"The whole pace of Americast was far swifter than that of The News Agents, which I prefer: the setup clearer and the tone warm enough, though I could have done without the weather discussion...programmes are good and will almost certainly get better. Americast will motor on like the Rolls-Royce it is..."
