Worth a listen!
I get the podcast of that every week and listen while I'm jogging or doing boring garden jobs. Excellent programme. In fact you can get the news quiz extra on podcast, which is 40 or 45 minutes, instead of the 30 min broadcast version.
You'll enjoy your run this week. Some chap from the Daily Heil been brave enough to appear!
I have always wondered why the teams seem to both get two points for each question but still one team ends up winning! Something must happen in the lost 10 minutes.
I wait for the extra version, download it via the radio player.
I’m a podcast listener too.
Miles Jupp has come a long way since I used to watch him on Balamory with my kids.
Just catching News Quiz Extra. Peter Oborne doesn't appear to have a sense of humour.
Either that or he's playing up beautifully to Daily Mail type and being really really dry. He might just be the finest straight man in comedic history.

*Something like cabinet reshuffle... moving the jam closer to the spice rack
