Giles Coren Has No Idea
Each week Giles Coren finds himself with no idea what to write about in his weekly column. Having read all the papers and found nothing of interest whatsoever, he takes a break and does the school run. That’s where his wife and fellow journalist Esther Walker comes in. Upon his return, Esther has half a dozen ideas she’s spotted ready to knock around with him over the kitchen table and a much needed pot of coffee.You can read Giles in The Times here;

Bereft
Where is Giles where is Esther? I am missing their banter. O K so his resto column is back but please don’t give up on the glorious podcast you two - I just love it - better than all the rest of the half baked crap you get others doing - footballers & the other dregs! Come back pretty please?!

Well that’s enough for me.
One episode of listening to this gibbering pillock who can’t finish a single one of his inane thoughts before motoring onto the next dull thing he thinks is “edgy”. Abysmal

Enjoyable.
Love the podcast but today there were 3 ads for the Apple TV Oprah show. Obviously not the presenters’ fault but if Apple keep this up, I’m out.
