Reviews
Short stories depicting the underbelly of British sub-culture. Beautiful stuff. Edit (Oct 2020): got too popular and they’ve monetised it, loosing the essence of the show in the process. Shame Poppy’s gone. Series 4 seems empty of the original’s appeal.

You should be ashamed at yourselves. JUSTICE FOR POPPY

Really enjoyed the first 3 series. Very disappointed with this one especially as Poppy has been ‘dropped’. Podcast is not the same without her and the whole feel of the show has changed. Unsubscribed...

Where’s Poppy? Terrible choice boys.

Just sort it out.

Ah - gossip from the 70s is my favourite. This is very very funny.

Undoubtedly the start of series four was poor but then I felt series 3 was just as bad...but now it’s pulling round again. The first two series were some of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard and are classics. Series 4 ep4 appears to be returning to a stronger level again. Plus, you’ve got to give...Read full review »

So good.

Shame its not as good without poppy. Series1 2 and 3 are great.

Dumping Poppy in a shady way? Unsubscribed.
Tinka27 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/22/20
Very off-putting in how Polly was treated and podcast rubbish without her. Childish and unprofessional to delete old series. Unsubscribed.

Wtf
Where’s Poppy? Loved the first three seasons and Poppy was integral to that. This season not so much. Seems a bit forced and Earl needs to calm the f@#k down. Not even half as funny sadly as was my favourite podcast
Carlos Kingdom via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/22/20
Series 1-3 are BRILLIANT. Welly Baby still makes me laugh so much which is why I give it 1 star. And the one about the bloke with the air pump at the BP garage is solid gold. Series 4 however has taken a nosedive, not just because Poppy is no longer on the show but the new format is just dull...Read full review »

Hilarious, disturbing, sick, twisted, mental. Recommend then. The robot adds to the dystopian strangeness, very original. Love it. Was odd, at first, with Poppy gone, but she didn't add so much on later reflection.Read full review »
LotusBlueTwo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/21/20
The podcast is great and many of the gossips have me laughing along as the guys crack up themselves. That euphoric feeling just disappears completely when the summary comes on. It’s just not funny, brings nothing to the podcast and angers me. It’s almost a dealbreaker. Drop that and just...Read full review »

You owe your audience an explanation for your seemingly disgraceful treatment of Poppy
JDaleLewis via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/21/20
Show had a great thing going, was absolutely brilliant. Then they sacked Poppy via their agents (nice one guys) and I can honestly say the show has suffered massively. Dynamic and chemistry is gone and is now two middle aged guys laughing all episode. Way to ruin it! Can I also point out that...Read full review »
davecaley via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/20/20
Let’s face it Poppy was good as another laugh a long colleague but wasn’t great at reading the gossip and was constantly losing track of where she was. The constant ‘erghs’ were annoying and then never remembering the winning gossip to shout at the wall felt like she wasn’t really paying...Read full review »

Used to really enjoy listening this podcast and find it really funny,looked forward to series 4 but now it’s just the two of them it isn’t the same and haven’t enjoyed the latest ones so won’t bother anymore.
con5678 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/19/20
Not even tried to listen to S4 because I just thought how they went about getting rid of Poppy was really shady. And now I see they’ve deleted the old series. What a couple of wanks.
Jessicajumpers via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/19/20
No longer funny. Firing Poppy was a huge mistake. It’s absolutely lost something because now it just sounds like two blokes trying too hard. Why get rid of past episodes as well? Incredibly childish move. Unsubscribed.
Edencalvert via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/18/20
Season 4 is a huge decline in comedy value… and with the earlier seasons deleted, its simply not worth the time anymore.
@alexowenmurray via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/18/20
Won’t be listening again unless Poppy comes back. It’s not the same.
locopoe via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/18/20
Season 4 is so dead, the show has lost all it’s charm, it needs a third voice and something better at the end
Vvvbbbtttrrraaaa via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/18/20
This isn’t the same without Poppy. Not really enjoying it anymore unfortunately. If you can find series 1-3 anywhere give them a listen but I wouldn’t bother with series 4. Unsubscribed.
DavyNeale via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/17/20
Was so chuffed when Series 4 popped up again, but unfortunately got bored very quickly. Poppy was very natural and her laugh made me laugh. The new format is just dull somehow
BobbieGirl20 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/17/20
It’s definitely lost something
littlemanbambam via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/16/20
Man, losing Poppy was such a bad move. Really not as good without her. Makes the ones about women feel gross without her in the room. I’m unsubscribing.
Me486211306 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/14/20
Used to be a go to listen, but since firing Poppy I won’t listen anymore. What a waste of a good thing!!
Daniel Roy mackay via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/14/20
So funny I’ve been recommending to friends. Has me howling with laughter. Or Is that just another rumour!! Keep up the great work guys. Thank you
Arriba arriba via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/14/20
Being honest, Poppy maybe wasn’t as good a story teller as the blokes. It seems though like instead of experimenting a bit with who does all the reading and who does the voting etc, the easier idea to explore was to [get someone else to] remove Poppy completely. Like she added no value at all....Read full review »

Poppy Hillstead made this podcast. She could be funnier saying one word than these two personality vacuums could be when rambling on for 20 minutes. You have ruined something really good and shown yourselves to be complete w***nkers 👍👍👍
ho p3 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/13/20
Such a weird decision to self-sabotage a previously great and successful podcast by unceremoniously dumping one of the hosts. Not only was it a horrible thing to do, but the format no longer makes sense and it’s nowhere near as funny.
SamHandwich22 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/13/20
Bit underhand the way the poppy situation was dealt with and it’s lacking a bit without her. Disappointed that you felt the need to scrub her existence from previous series by deleting them, bit childish to be honest. Some that are rated highly by you are utter garbage and some hilarious ones you...Read full review »

Poppy was my favourite on this, pretty shameful that you sacked her. Genuinely not as good without her.
G&Tfloozie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/13/20
Wow! What a massive drop in quality between seasons 3 and 4! The format has been modified — the “guest celebrity” segments are missing, the atmospheric between-story interludes that gave such a unique feel to the show are gone, and of the hosts is gone without explanation, which drastically...Read full review »
kebublezuckia via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/20
As other reviewers have mentioned, losing Poppy has definitely made the podcast less appealing. Audio quality is terrible now, Jo sounds like he’s being recorded on an iPhone. You’d think moving to a Patreon model would mean better microphones!
ipodmann via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/12/20
This was utterly brilliant as a trio with Poppy. It just doesn’t work anymore and none of the gossips in season 4 are remotely funny. One star only because I still have memories of the lightbulb story and bean man from previous seasons...
Thorpey31 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/20
Considerably better without Poppy. Always felt she lacked gusto when shouting the rumour out the window and I’ve since learned that she was just shouting at a wall. Couldn’t even be bothered to get up and go to a window. No wonder she had to be sacked.
Shaneo1206 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/20
Really enjoyed series 1-3, nowhere near as funny anymore. Used to listen every week, but I’ve now unsubscribed. Disappointing what they did to Poppy, seems to be a complete money orientated move as well. Disappointing
CraigWiseman via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/20
Seasons 1-3 were hilarious and I was so excited for season 4... how disappointed was I! Firstly found it hard to listen knowing how they treated Poppy but also genuinely not funny and sounds forced and not the same without her. And now the good episodes gone too? Very sad
Sareypops via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/11/20
Real shame you removed Poppy, this was one of my favourite podcasts and now it sounds desperate and forced. Best thing you can do is put your hands up and admit the mistake and go back to the old set up.
doc.hans via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/10/20
Loved this podcast. Poppy, it seems, has been dumped from it. She was my favourite!! Probably Won't listen anymore.Read full review »

Firing Poppy Hilstead....big mistake!
sstgviknkkdh via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/09/20
As a lover of comedy I know that crude jokes are the bottom of the bottom. Well this podcast is as crass as it gets and it’s bloody brilliant. Proper British scum I love it
Drewzenburg via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/08/20
As practically every other review now says, this used to be one of my favourite podcasts but finding out why Poppy isn’t in it anymore completely changed that for me. Even if it was still funny (it isn’t), I couldn’t listen to it knowing that the people joking around were capable of acting in...Read full review »
Indigo457 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/08/20
Was great when Poppy was a part of it. Now they deleted the old eps and are reusing old stories with just the two guys – acting as if they haven’t heard them before?? What??
NickDanhurst via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/20
Unfortunately it just isn’t funny anymore, it has lost its charm. FYI try out ‘Poppy Hillstead has entered the chat’ much funnier than season 4 of GM.
