Fab podcast!

Excellent podcast. Olivia Coleman and Andrew Scott would be great dinner party guests in non covid times. A really enjoyable listen

Mostly great when Dermot doesn't get in the way

I really like these, though sometimes Dermot needs to get out of the way and stop jumping into his guests answers. Episode 3 is a good example, there was one in the earlier seasons which annoyed me in the same way. Otherwise great stuff.

Lovely relaxing chat. Dermot is excellent.

A real chance to get to know the person well. Dermot really engages with them and knows what they've done and what makes them tick.

it needs to be something you'd like

I think the idea is fine, though by its very nature the enjoyment or not of the book is going to depend on the guests. I dislike Olivia Colman's swearing, which was unnecessary, though I also appreciate it was her chatting. I'm not precious about it. Dermot O'Leary did a fine job as would be expected. The only interview I found interesting was Niall Horan but that's because I was intrigued to listen to his life. it's a very much a case of, if the person being interviewed interests you, it's a good listen. If not, it's boring. so, neither good nor bad, purely personal preference.

Honest, funny, touching. Loved it

I love Dermot's openness and humility and this is reciprocated in how his guests respond to him. Makes an insightful, and times poignant podcast that bit extra special. Please do a Part 2 with Olivia and Andrew, and gin.

Heartwarming stuff but safe ground?

Enjoyable companion to my daily walk, Dermot has a warm friendly and engaging interview style but rarely asks his subjects tough questions about their life experiences. Fascinating none the less! Well worth the 44 mins to 1 hour listen.

Loved it

I don't often leave a review but felt I had to for this series. Dermot is an amazing interviewer and the guests are so varied and interesting. I have learnt that Olivia Colman is hilarious as is Andrew Scott and Nail Horan gave a real insight into being thrust into stardom and that I would never want to be a bomb disposal specialist. It is a must listen and am now going to download the rest
