Highly recommended

Some great satire for your daily commute if, like me, it's often too painful to listen to the regular BBC news. Light hearted for the most part but equal measures biting. It helps if you've heard / watched at least one episode of The Archers, The One Show, Andrew Marr Show, Panorama, etc.

The Audible recording of the show is great, high quality reproduction. Meta data seems to be completely missing, but it does have numbered chapters at least. I'm not sure if that's a limitation of the Audible platform.

Superb

Hilariously funny, especially the Andrew Neil sketches. True entertainment. Impressions are spot on and the topical humour inspired.

Dead Ringers is brilliant but Audible isn't

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A download format that works; episodes individually organised…

Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Jamieson and Nev Fountain again?

Yes, but not for use on Audible, the worst format I have ever come across.
