I’ve only just found this podcast and haven’t stopped listening. Alan Davies is the perfect host and the guests are spot on. Laughed out loud a good few times. Please make more shows soon!!

I watched Jo’s pillared film and it was Fantastic. Made me laugh and cry. Wonderful. Thanks Jo. My pillared entertainment would be “getting on” also very funny and sad. Love this podcast

Great mix of high brow, low brow, emotional or funny chat. Davies is always a good host.

Got to listen to people I would never normally choose. What podcasts are all about if you’re interested in life stories. Looking forward to next series.

I have just discovered this podcast and I love the premise. Alan is a really intelligent interviewer and his guests actually have something to say. These episodes are both interesting and entertaining. I hope that the gap is just one more covid thing and eventually, there will be more.

Has this just stopped being produced? :-( Only just discovered it and was excited to explore the back catalogue.

A great listen as you’d expect

Review 2: I keep checking the podcast site, hoping a new interview has been released, only to be disappointed anew. However, have discovered Chef White’s so temporarily occupied. I thought the framework for the interviews worked very well and hope to see more some time. Review 1:Brilliant...Read full review »
Janinehw via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/05/21
Really love the way Alan speaks with his guests and considers their memories and favourite things. The seven pillars is a clever concept as it gives the chance for the guests, some of which we know much about through other interviews or podcasts, to give a new insight into their lives. Please do...Read full review »

Love Alan, love this concept. One bugbear is the way the adverts are spread out and badly cut in interrupting the guests mid sentence
@tinyrayray via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/19/21
Great episode. When are you doing more?
lottieqwer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/16/21
What a great episode, will be digging out some of his books and the story of the Fat old Chinese lady had me in stitches!! 😂

Such a geat podcast.Thank you Alan and Darren for talking about mental health 👍🏻
steveb45 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/05/21
I am not a football fan. I saw some hooliganism at the age of nine and thought, this is not for me. So when I saw the list of podcast guests, this was the one that interested me least. However, my mind is blown. Lost in Translation, Jeeves and Wooster, Camera Obscura, The Fall, The Jesus and...Read full review »

Only just found this, it’s brilliant joyful and thought provoking. Every time I listen I find myself thinking of my own seven pillars and my mind wonders for the rest of the day of favourite things in my life! Love Alan’s gentle questioning .
happycockerspaniel via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/18/21
I’ve just finished the eight episodes and can’t wait for more …thank you Mr. Davies! I hope it’s soon!
Wendy Perry via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/08/21
Love this podcast it’s insightful, high brow without being poncy and above it self. You get lots of reccs and learn lots about both guest and host. No pillar is too low brow so u don’t feel stupid for your likes but also learn some absolutely incredible things.
BettyHarriet via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/05/21
Yay
The same eleven people that have saturated everything for the last 3 years, being themselves. It’s actually tolerable. I’ve given it five stars because I couldn’t give it a PhD
FartKnockingPickleKisser via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/01/21
Very insightful, lots of recommendations of things to watch, read etc. Alan Davies has a nice relaxed interviewing style. I accidentally gave this a one star rating thinking you tapped the stars individually, sorry! Have now given it five stars :)
scotsmc via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/28/21
I enjoy this pod so much. Wonderful concept that allows for very interesting responses from the quests. Alan you have entertained me for years with your acting and comedy skills, thanks for this great podcast.
BBinGA via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/21
Usually these type of podcasts are either under researched or the presenter is a sycophant ,these are neither. The guests are very eclectic ranging from indie music loving ex footballer Pat Nevin to the fascinating Jay Parini. Highly recommended.
Bobofwaffle via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/13/21
Love all the interviews - Alan has a magical quality and brings out the best stuff from his guests - more please - loved them all so far
annypanni via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/12/21
Not being a follower of sport-ball, frankly, I’d never heard of Pat Nevin before: what an intelligent and interesting man he is, and Alan Davies is a very good interviewer.
MSHL74 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/03/21
Well, here I am quite a while after having listened to the Jo Brand episode that I caught on June 22 and with another comment. I am still annoyed at Jo Brand for her childish goings on with regard to how everything American is awful. I hope that I get over it but to listen to her childish...Read full review »

I love this podcast Alan Davies is generous and allows his interviewers to open up and transport you back in time, not only is he’s kind and thoughtful the shows are interesting, moving and funny. Can’t wait to listen to more. Linzi X
linzideee via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/30/21
I have always enjoyed Alan’s chats with friends in his series As Yet Untitled. This podcast is a beautiful extension of those chats; Alan is so gentle in his interviewing style, sharing his experiences which encourages the guest to give a little more than the framework of Seven Pillars. I have...Read full review »

Alan Davies is a great interviewer. I follow him on the hilarious Arsenal podcast The Tuesday Club. This new podcast has great guests, who cover a wide range of interesting topics personal to them. A very good listen.
michaelb88 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/23/21
The ‘Seven Pillars’ chosen by each guest provide fascinating and sometimes unexpected insights. Alan Davies is, as expected, a wonderful conversationalist and interviewer. Plus a fantastic and interesting range of guests. Highly recommended.
lemonpop5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/20/21
Such a great podcast and a great interview format, which makes the conversation flow. Alan is a great host 😁
Kimbers_jones via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/18/21
Loving it Alan Brilliant podcast 👍👍👍
Mr Do Well via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/16/21
Perfect listening
ChrisGoonerUFC via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/16/21
I have always admired Alan and in this series, his skill as a conversationalist is completely engaging. It’s quite an art when speaking to others, to resist the temptation to interrupt the other person’s response or flow. I’m a big fan of Walton Goggins and hoped I wouldn’t be disappointed. I...Read full review »

In this podcast, Alan Davies demonstrates his excellent skills as an interviewer. He researches his guests and their interests, and asks super questions. I look forward to the rest of this series.
jackiebold via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/21
It’s very difficult to do anything original in the podcast interview format but from listening to the first few of these, I think Alan Davies has done something great. I think the difference is that Alan is so engaged. He has gone through and listened, watched and researched all the items that...Read full review »

I was delighted to discover this podcast. Alan Davies is a great comedian, he is also the perfect host for this show. He has such an easy going and respectful demeanour as he chats with his guests that it draws you in and you almost feel like you are part of the conversation.

I am a 66-year old grandma of 7, and would LOVE to be besties with these two guys! I have long admired lovely Alan Davies on QI, and stand-up too, naturally. But now, have fallen equally in love with Romesh. How beautifully he spoke of his wife, children, his lovely Mum and slightly tricky...Read full review »

More than an hour of interesting, often funny, sometimes deep chat. Interesting people skillfully interviewed and conversed with by Alan Davies. What's not to like?Read full review »

Whether it’s QI, The Tuesday Club, As Yet Untitled, Stand Up, etc, Alan just makes me laugh and this latest offering is no different. A very, very, very funny man.
Maryjalush via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/11/21
Thoroughly enjoying this podcast, Alan such a good interviewer, engages really well with the guests, listens and allows them to talk and comes across as genuinely interested in what they have to say. I have always enjoyed Alan’s work and this does not disappoint, looking forward to the next episode.
Tree tastic via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/10/21
Early days in the podcast I know, but Alan’s sensitive and fascinating interviews have got me hooked. It’s on my ‘must listen’ list. Highly recommended!
Taniadevotee via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/10/21
What a way to kick off a new podcast. A big fan of Romesh but still learned something new in this episode.
paul1332 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/10/21
Great idea for a podcast, and the perfect host for this.
laurel canyon fan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/21
Fascinating and entertaining long form interview with two brilliant comedians. So nice to hear them talk and engage over a longer period of time with real depth and connection on fresh and interesting topics. Really interesting format idea and look forward to the rest of series.
Nedram via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/09/21
Seems like such a nice fella and I love Romesh too! Looking forward to listen to the other episodes
