Summary

Dermot O’Leary interviews a range of people he greatly admires from the worlds of sport, fashion, politics and entertainment.

Dermot says: "People, Just People is born out of curiosity to find out more about the lives of individuals that I’ve watched from afar – but not had the chance to get to know. How they got to where they did, the highs and lows that shaped that journey, and what have they learned along the way?"

Promising...

Some good guests especially Jean Nissan and Pat Davies, the interceptors from Bletchley Park. More like this please.

However, at times Dermot comes across as a bit sycophantic and obsequious. You can imagine him grinning broadly and squirming with pleasure in his chair as he makes agreeable noises.

Refreshing Approach & Mighty Enjoyable. Well Done!

Would never have usually listened to an MP for 40 minutes, especially in the current climate. Not only did I learn a bit, I loved it. Ed Milliband shows a snippet of a very endearing personality not really seen before by Joe public. Dermot continues to have his focus well alinged on what folk want. Refreshing content and mighty enjoyable. Job well done I'd say

Entertaining and educational

A wide range of people being sensitively interviewed. Nice to hear from 'non celebrities' not selling anything just talking.
A great listen.

Brilliant podcast series

I loved listening to Dermot O'Leary interviewing such interesting people. Why has this stopped after episode 6? How can I listen to the rest of his interviews?

Excellent Interview

The sort of interview you crave on TV but only given 3 minutes of. Some fantastic anecdotes, well worth the listen.

Really refreshing

This was only the first episode but it was really refreshing, I enjoyed listening to it.
I liked Dermot style of interviewing and I came away from it with a new respect for Ed Miliband.

Can't wait to hear more episodes.

One negative comment, hearing them gulping tea has got worse by episode 4, take the cups away, please 🙏

INTERESTING FROM START TO FINISH

This is a great audio-book full of interviews with interesting people and stories. If, like myself, you love learning something new, this is a great book to hear. I've learned lots of random yet interesting facts about newspaper morals and world war code breakers. Yes, the bits and pieces you pick up are quite random but still make for a great read, or listen. The only minor downside to this audio-book is that Dermot (interviewer) sometimes cuts off the speaker or changes the subject matter too soon. Overall, this is a great audio-book that I enjoyed a lot.

interesting guests. friendly narration.

A good listen but Dermot talking about himself when guests are telling a tale was a bit off putting but i still enjoyed it and like Dermot but wanted to hear Stephen's stories more.
Defo worth a listen.
