Disagree about sweet Bobby, thought it only got compelling towards the end, fascinating insight into how family can unfortunately let you down when a drama can become too inconvenient and embarrassing to deal with!

I bet hardly anyone listens to the live show and 2 hours is a big chunk of airtime.

Surely the pod will continue.

Looking for some 3-6+ hr podcasts for travel. Open to anything really.

Was a big fan of Hunting Warhead that was shared here before, so anything like that would be cool.

Thought Sweet Bobby was garbage so none of that pls Laughing out loud

War on truth
Human resources
Conflict of interest
Slow burn
Rabbit hole

Rabbit Hole - starts off really good, but tails off a bit
Slow Burn - I only listened to the Tupac and BIG series, was great

Currently listening to Power. S1 was Robert Maxwell - really good. S2 is Hugh Hefner, halfway through, host can be very annoying at times but still decent. Looking forward to the Don King season

devastated man. bbc seem to make it difficult for hosts to keep the same vibe/ideas/format for a different broadcaster after they've left the bbc so i'm fearing the worst. bit sad but it's been a part of my life for so many years.

Any eps of Dan Carlin Hardcore History in particular worth getting into?

Finished West Cork - enjoyed the storytelling and insight but felt it defo could've been shorter. SPOILER AHEAD - felt totally blueballed by the ending tho.
