"Preceding the hour-long podcast came an appeal for cash. The appeal went on for four solid minutes which made it one of the longest advertisements I’ve ever sat through. And there lies the key difference between radio and live theatre. There’s no instant feedback on radio, no umbilical connection between performer and audience. Radio lacks these important cues and it leads to ill-discipline and self-indulgence."

"Aussie co-host Clare Hooper provides a genuine energy, as does guest comedienne Tessa Waters...it is the failures of feminism that deeply limit the show: the enjoyment of Frances-White’s humour depends heavily on the audience of women being white, middle-class, heterosexual — and perhaps, ‘guilty’ about it. For those who do not share this experience, it is likely to fall far short of the mark."
