James Marriot • The Times UK Nov 2, 2023

"As Times Radio listeners will know, nothing with Chorley involved is going to be worthy or dull. He sets a buoyant, fast pace. It’s good to have a podcast with the energy of live radio. Mandelson slots in as a drier, downbeat presence. Mackenzie has a quick wit. The panel format feels fresh and demonstrates that not every single podcast in the world has to be two blokes talking to each odd it is nobody has tried to capture that energy for a podcast before. It’s fantastic. I’m not just saying that."
