James Marriot • The Times UK May 23, 2024

"(Season: The History of Bad Ideas) The premise (and it is a good one) is to take bad ideas seriously. If the podcast has a lesson it is that bad and good ideas are not as easy to tell apart as we may hope."

"Runciman’s show continues in the more cerebral tradition of Talking Politics....impeccably highbrow...This is also a pleasure."
