Today we want to let you know about a new show that we’re loving. It’s called Ian Wright’s Everyday People, where each week Wrighty meets someone with an incredible story of bravery, resilience or transformation. He gets to the heart of how they’ve changed the world for the better and why they do the things they do. There's Major Chris Brannigan, a doting father-of-three who took on an impossible 700 mile barefoot walk, raising funds to create a pioneering treatment for his daughter, diagnosed with a rare genetic disease, and millions of other children suffering with rare diseases. Ian also meets Munira Mahmoud, a survivor of Grenfell Tower who has been preparing home cooked meals for families struggling to put food on the table during the pandemic. Ian then invites Andy Hider on the podcast, a mum of three from Bristol who fostered over 150 children over three decades to hear about the story that saw her recognised with an MBE for her services to children.   If you like what you heard, search ‘Ian Wright’s Everyday People’ to listen to the full episode. Available every Tuesday on all major podcast platforms.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Delia Smith, adventures in the snow, a very detailed conversation about lighting and forbidden Kickers.

Guys, I mean, you know; is this great podcasting? No; it's the best! It's what I'm here for. No pressure guys, but please keep the podcasts coming when you can! And just keep being yourselves! One of your dear, dear listeners. Babye now, bye, okay, bye.

I've listened to a few episodes of this pod, and they sound like they're always struggling for conversation, rather than being old friends. Can't decide whether it's worth sticking with or not....x

Think Tom Allen is hilarious, but the sidekick needs to a) get her own personality and b) her own voice Just 'chatting' is not enough for a podcast these days. There has to be a point to it all.
