This show was so my better without an audience. It is now ruined by left-wing people in the audience going as crazy as if England have won the World Cup (which they’d actually boo) every time someone says something negative about the Tories. They’re should be a no clapping/whooping/cheering/...Read full review »

I enjoy AQ, and I like the concept of AA… But Anita’s hosting of AA is awful and has made me turn it off more than once. She constantly interrupts people with unhelpful interjections. She claims to be hurrying the guests along, but her interjections actually end up making the exchange take longer...Read full review »

Really enjoying Alex’s stewardship. She has a very balanced demeanour but you know she’ll not have any of the waffling guests buggering about and wasting airtime.

No any answers downloaded this week. This is not the first time this has happened.
iamdismissed via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/02/22
Required listening any, but all the better since Chris Mason took over - he’s got such a lovely light touch.
Radionoush via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/11/22
AA is just a mess, Anita does not challenge when required and is turning into a 50+ demographic rant show. As a 25-30 listener it is completely alienating and only highlights a small demographic. Keep AQ and appeal to younger listeners via more effective mediums (TikTok, Snap, Meta etc) as these...Read full review »

AQ episode incomplete for second time in a month although this time complete episode was uploaded a day later so maybe someone is looking at reviews. Even so, this is only podcast I listen to where this happens. A slight improvement on not uploading it at all, which used to occasionally happen...Read full review »

3 minutes only of Any Questions uploaded this week. This is the second time this has happened.
English Sck Dog via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/28/21
This week 3 mins of Any Questions available for download. Is no one from the national broadcaster checking any of this? Very poor
00coolcock via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/24/21
Why is that the Any answers is downloadable before the Any questions program and this week only 3 mins is downloadable of the whole program.

Regularly only get AA without AQ. Today we get AQ but only a 4 minute click. Licence fee well deserved. Not!
Capt-Austin via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/23/21
Audience and guest’s views do not reflect a balance of the population as a whole. Far too left leaning. From a technical point of view…regularly missing AQ episodes, seems pretty basic issue that should be addressed.

I am so impressed by Anita Anand, a thoughtful intelligent and respectful person of real quality. Anita has the patience to listen to the point each caller wishes to make, though when time is pressing they can sometimes appear to be quite slow. In each case however Anita hears them out and...Read full review »

Big Joey Man 10 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/30/21
Prefer Chris Mason to JD, he was insufferably patronising & stuffy. Self selecting ‘yah boo’ audience tiresomely tribal & full of panelists making ‘better schools/NHS/housing speeches’ with no substantiation of how to achieve it. Tbf, CM does interrogate the panel but I’d like a rough...Read full review »

Regularly only get the AA part, surely this is easy to fix? Enjoy the show but the delivery of the podcast isn’t always great.
Danny K 83 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/07/21
I have now stopped listening; AQ is institutionally biased - Government / Centre right politicians are invariably outnumbered 3 or 4 (if the Chair is included) to 1. Woeful decline in a once great programme ....
TJnTC via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/03/21
AA will download but often AQ won’t and isn’t on the podcast app - please apple/bbc sort this out!
Miri7219 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/07/21
Excellent podcast. Still seem to be struggling to consistently post the correct AQ and AA each week.
SRC... via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/21
I like Chris Mason but Jonathan Dimbleby was outstanding and kept a tight rein on the panel, interrupting only to ask an incisive question. Mason lets things slide a bit (question about a daily walk leading to lengthy chat by Joan Bakewell about her mental health - she was just answering what...Read full review »

Can’t bear to listen to this any more, after probably decades of doing so. It’s gone the same way as the TV programme since Fiona Bruce took over.
Tom delete BBC via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/21
As stated many times here, podcasts are so unreliable. Many time I find any answers but no AQ, missing wake up to money and podcasts like business daily substituted with no explanation. I shouldn’t need to use BBC Sounds app to catch up on missing episodes.
BusbyIoM via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/21
BBC have ruined both QT and this show. Fill of nonentities - usually leftists. Unsubscribing - well done waster BBC
Junta 79 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/23/21
I used to look forward to the discussions on AQ, now sadly reduced to a selection of successfully frightened people telling people with perspective off. The BBC has totally lost the plot.
Rachakimoo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/09/21
I like this program, but unlike Any Questions, Any Answers is rarely available to download or listen again on iPlayer. I’ve complained numerous times about this over the years, but it remains an ongoing problem. Which I think is disgusting. This is a BBC flagship program, that UK citizens are...Read full review »

What happened to AQ last week ? Half of the podcast isn’t much use !
Jaffa1954 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/06/20
I want to listen to Any Question for last Saturday, the Jeremy Corbyn one, before I listen to Any Answers. Where is it?

Still trying to download AQ. Please can you upload - thanks !

Brilliant programme but so erratic to download - today’s AA available but not AQ. Sort it out BBC.
GWS 57 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/31/20
For the last month or so, have not been able to download. Get an error. Other pods work perfectly. Please sort this out.

Where is this weeks programme? This happens all the time. What’s the delay!?

AQ seems to be experiencing technical difficulties... download appears to start, then stops again with no error message. No issues downloading other podcasts from BBC and elsewhere. Rating is for the show in general. Generally excellent, but minus one star for Chris Mason’s patronising start-...Read full review »

Dear BBC In the past 3 weeks I have not been able to listen to AQ. AA can be downloaded but not AQ. I am in Australia & do miss AQ
Missing AQ in Australia via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/06/20
Mason has taken it upon himself to conduct mini interviews with guests, taking time out from the panel answering the questions and the person asking the question having a right of reply. It’s also fairly obvious that opposition panel members get a rougher ride than government representatives....Read full review »

Chris Mason seems like he’s more interested in getting us a good 30 second soundbite out of the guests that he is in answering the questions. I think after listening to this show for a while probably to keep my interest you need to switch to a more balanced presenter. One who can keep the...Read full review »

My favourite podcast! .... but, (sorry to be a pain), this is the only way I seem to get Any Answers uploaded. Often seems to be a lag. Any chance we can get the last AA uploaded (from last Saturday) - Thank you.
Sadiedaly via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/30/20
This is an intriguing podcast, revealing the reality of British public opinion. If it weren’t for Anita Anand keeping bumbling, often overly-opinionated members of the British public on track, it would be intolerable. The podcast only gets 3 stars because I really worry sometimes about how and...Read full review »

Such a refreshing contribution. Please have him again.
Soorian via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/19/20
It is a bit like an aural anaesthetic. Not entirely sure why, but it no longer holds my attention. Lots of commentary on feelings, but not much in the way of factual detail. I am always surprised by the length of time allocated to callers with poorly thought out arguments.
Sheerpride via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/05/20
Sadly Anita Anand ruins AA week in and week out by her constant interruptions and failure to listen to the AQ audience. She is actually very rude, patronizing and insincere. Please replace her with a more sympathetic host.
Kennyincanada via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/04/20
It seems the podcast producers have themselves in a bind. In the bid to be diverse, suitably left leaning and totally woke the quality of guest has declined month on month and the host is incredibly bland.
JBGozzy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/13/20
John Bercow continues his war with the Tory party, and his political bias still devalues the post of Speaker. Great the way Grant Shapps used his own comment about convention as a way of explaining why Bercow has not been made a peer
BilliCoops via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/07/20
Anand is on the wrong programme. She spends an hour presiding over a fact free mess of anecdotes and emotional outpourings (please don’t talk about facts or policies, just tell me how do you feel?) virtue signalling at every turn. Total waste of time.
