Critic Reviews

Score: 2

James Marriot • The Times UK Dec 7, 2023

"A sharp producer could have sliced something short and pithy out of these flabby episodes. Unfortunately, a podcast parodying two people waffling for half an hour is perilously close to a podcast that just consists of … two people waffling for half an hour. Not every one of those minutes is essential."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Dec 2, 2023

"...very funny newish show that takes the mickey out of The Rest Is History, and all the other “posh chaps talking about the past” podcasts...subtle enough that when you first hear it, you wonder if it might be real. Properly, sneakily funny."
