Everyone’s a Critic
Mail On Sunday
Review by Leaf Arbuthnot
"Start with the episode with Zoltan Istvan, a leading light in the transhumanist movement. It’s a fascinating listen."
The Sunday Times
Review by Roland White
"The journalist Andrew Gold was taken over by the spirit of Louis Theroux. He bludgeoned his guests with charm and good manners."
The Jewish News
Review by Brigit Grant
"There is something for everyone, no matter how peculiar their taste! This week, he talks to Emily Green who left her Chasidic Jewish family."
Tweet: Daniel Finkelstein
"I loved doing this, based round the book. Andrew has a gentle friendly style but he asks penetrating questions." (Admittedly, this was on Twitter.)

Ah so good. Really level headed, honest and fair in the face of big topics and difficult discussions. Love the gender equality and flipping around of stereotypes.

Eye opening, honest and thought provoking. From the episodes I’ve heard so far, this is refreshingly good journalism - and I’m hooked.
