Less and less interesting food. Guests usually pretty good. Reasonable way to fill the gaps between adverts!

What a superb podcast. Great format idea with truly interesting guests and it is so refreshing to have an interviewer that does his research (such a shame this has become so rare!). Excellent Jay....loved every one of them so far.

Love Jay Rayner and Russell's podcast. Combining the two people was such an enjoyable listen and I chuckled at the UK backstage story.

I have listen to session 1 & 2 back to back with the Nadiya and Asling being my favourites. Great podcast... The question is, what will I do whilst waiting for session 3. Seems I will have to just listen to David Tennant 🙄

I like Jay rayner and this is fun, especially the food chat, but it has a fundamental and fatal flaw: people talking with their mouth full 😔
