Alix and the team at the Guardian have produced some of the most respectful pieces of journalism on some very difficult subjects. The podcast is informative yet caring, serious yet fun. Alix's rapport with the interviewees is really apparent, and the way the subjects are tackled is great. Hands down, an award winner.

I absolutely love how openly all these topics are discussed. Alex perfectly approaches each topic with such lovely and charming humour making each subject that little more approachable. Amazing! I’ve really learnt so much and I hope there’s much more to come. The world needs this podcast!

Loved this podcast, very well hosted and such refreshingly open and honest discussions about things we really do need to talk about! I spent the whole time listening to this podcast with a little smile on my face...can't wait for season 2!

I’ve been binge listening to this while crocheting Christmas presents. I’ve heard the lot and I want more! Why is this not an ongoing podcast? It should be. It’s brilliant!
