One of my favourite podcasts ever - Elizabeth is the most thoughtful, considered, clever and witty podcast hosts around and never ‘fails’ to inspire or disappoint with her interesting, honest and ever brave guests!

These podcasts are excellent - always entertaining guests and the host always manages to ask the questions we want the answers to! Lots of brilliant topics covered and have helped me a lot with mental health and also viewing my ‘failures’ with more positivity. Highly recommend

Just when I thought I couldn’t hold Queen Jess in higher esteem, she smashes the How to Fail league with the best episode yet. Defeat is data collection🏆

Always a joy to listen to, I usually listen on my runs but have been know to get caught off guard and start crying mid run when an interview turns emotional!

Love this episode. Had preconceptions about Dr Alex- how wrong I was. What a lovely grounded individual. A credit to medicine.

Relieved to hear this message in the form of guest interviews. Failure is just one part of life’s messiness.

First time I’ve listened to this and loved it! I love your interviewing skills and your compassion! I loved Alexandra. So honest and real. I one saw her years ago at the theatre in body guard and I can honestly say that was the first time ever I understood the word “jaw dropping” her voice just...Read full review »

I love this podcast so much. I listen to it all the time with a silly smile on my face and nodding in agreement. Fabulous!!!
Msampo via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/05/21
One of my absolute favorite podcasts. Listening to how to fail in the morning on my way to work is one of the best parts of my day. The guest’s story’s are inspirational and uplifting. Elizabeth is such an amazing presenter!

This is another of the very few podcasts I really look forward to listening to each week. It is insightful, interesting and reaches to the core if what it is to be human. Thank you.

Engaging and entertaining, Elizabeth connects so well with her guests and you get a real sense of the person she is talking to. This podcast is definitely one of my favourites.

The connection between Elizabeth and Mohsin was palpable, I am a little bit in love too with this wonderfully kind and sensitive man.
Kentfryer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/29/21

everything about this podcast and Elizabeth Day- such a honest and refreshing listen.

Just dived into S7 E2 with Malcolm Gladwell. Most thoughtful and intelligent podcast I've think listened too in a long time. Day is a terrific interviewer. Really well done 👏.Read full review »

Elizabeth is great, she finds really interesting, funny and wonderful guests. I have loved hearing all of their wonderful failures and taking wisdom and comfort from them. I LOVE THIS PODCAST!
Gem GG via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/15/21
Often go running while listening to the podcast and always enjoy it but don’t often get close to tears. Alexandra Burke interview very brave and very emotional.
tommy gpb 22 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/14/21
Such interesting guests! A top quality podcast with a top quality host.
coolgirl656 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/08/21
Love Elizabeth’s interview style and I listen every week regardless of whether I have an interest in the guest or not.
MegSian via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/07/21
I’ve been listening to this podcast for quite a while. I don’t think I’m the central target demographic as a 51 year old man, judging by the ads and sponsors, but I can’t rate it more highly. It’s incisive, fascinating and really helps to see things from other points of view. Highly recommend it,...Read full review »

Elizabeth Day’s How To Fail podcasts have brought joy and reflection to my lockdown walks and are undoubtedly (with Fortunately with Fi and Jane which led me to How to Fail) the best listening discovery of this whole Covid-blighted year. The podcasts are always an excellent listen, often with...Read full review »

What a slice of listening heaven. The meeting of 2 seasoned podcasters treating us to such honest conversation. Pure joy.

I’m new to this podcast, just listened to Emma Barnett and loved it, amazing honesty from you both.
Cazzab1976 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/31/21
Elizabeth does such a good job covering a variety of topics. Her guests offer awesome advice and have incredible stories as well. I would recommend this show to anyone looking to be inspired!
megan@podcastingyou via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/21
Thank you Elizabeth
babthebuilder1010 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/28/21
I invariably enjoy this podcast but I particularly liked your conversation with Emma Reed Turrell. It struck a chord with me and I very much appreciated the honesty with which you both approached it. Thank you for sharing :)

Another brilliant episode in the series! Kazuo Ishiguro is a fascinating and intriguing man. For someone who loves Japanese authors I’m ashamed to say I’ve not read any of his books. Having now listened to this podcast with Elizabeth Day, I am going to remedy this immediately! Once again our host...Read full review »

Elizabeth Day is possibly the most skilled interviewer, she asks beautifully thoughtful questions, allows her guests to expand and talk so they reveal layer upon layer of interesting detail about their life, and is always kind about their perceived failures (and of course their successes). It is...Read full review »

I have always loved this podcast but was blown away by the Kazuo Ishiguro episode. Elizabeth always manages to get such interesting responses from her guests that you just don’t hear in other celebrity interviews.
sageandhart via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/24/21
Elizabeth is such a good interviewer and you can tell as she always forms a great rapport with her guests. They have kept me sane during wfh and been very informative and useful! Thank you xx
Kizzi90 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/24/21
I am in love with this podcast! Hearing people’s stories & all the things that haven’t gone right is inspiring, moving & truely motivating when reflecting on your own journey. The interviews are filled with kindness, authenticity, wit & great storytelling ~ thank you! X

Apsobloodylutely brilliant podcasts, and the reason my neighbours think I’m to be dealt with caution due to my shouting of “too sodding right” and “yep that’s me” because I’m listening in the garden with EarPods on loud. Keep up the good work 👍🏻😃👍🏻

Love listening to Elizabeth draw out people’s failures in such a delightful way.
Lindalovinlife via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/21/21
This podcast was excellent in shining a light on the importance of knowledge!!!
Parashakti L via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 03/20/21
I really enjoy the interesting guests but Elizabeth Day is the worst interviewer. Self indulgent, inauthentic and self absorbed; I can’t bear listening to get sickly fawning over the guests. I fast forward her speaking where I can but does not make for pleasurable and easy listening
Suse149388 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 03/20/21
I love Elizabeth and adore listening to her podcast. Her interview style is so revealing yet unintrusive (not a word but should be!) and I’m constantly learning more about myself through listening to her conversations. Would highly recommend. Thank you a thousand times for hours of enjoyment.
Jennee Wallis via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/19/21
I’ve listened to the podcast for over a year now. In my mind I replay many wise words of your guests and yourself whenever the ongoing Covid lockdown starts depressing me. My all time favourite is still the episode with Alain de Botton. Thank you Elisabeth.
Dubbelwaardeloos2 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 03/19/21
Listening to this today was such a positive decision! Some brilliantly expressed ideas and so much rang true for me about people pleasing. Emma is eloquent, wise and compassionate. The book is on order... waiting with great anticipation for it’s arrival. Thank you X x X
