I came across this source of podcasts by accident

https://audioboom.com/channel/coffee-house-shots

seems like many more there to entertain?

I use a podcast reader on my mobile - if you also then search for coffee house shots

seems to be a Spectator podcast

I can think of no two more egregious characters I would care to listen to - not! OK: apart from the Tory candidates, maybe...

Merc, do we really need all this clickbait (if that's what it is) on this forum? Others have complained besides me.
Suppose that this room is a lift. The support breaks and down we go with ever-increasing velocity.
Let us pass the time by performing physical experiments...

Precisely - but the problem is, every new thread displaces downwards, any thread I might be interested in. Until they drop off the first page and become easily missed...
