  1. Hi Dave,

    I was watching the daily politics yesterday and one of the protagonists mentions “I said this on my podcast” and another one said “Ooh, I said it on my podcast too”. I think every man jack has a podcast now and the “definition” has indeed changed.

    Why tha BBC has decided to do this with “Fortunately” has got be a way of pushing their own app and creating some form of exclusivity. Not exactly BBC charter mentality.

    I’ve added my wrath to the twitter threads as well, so let’s saee if it makes a difference.

    BYW, getting “ranty” and “whingy” is definitely part of getting older as (my) Caroline always tells me. It could be worse – think of Clithers! (Oh dear, dear, dear…)
