I will warn you in advance that the last 15 - 20 minutes of this show get very heavy indeed.

All of us suffer from depression and have done for a very long time. If hearing about this sort of thing first hand is a problem, then I would recommend you leave the cast at the point we start talking about Robin Williams.

More than an hour of the show is exactly what you've come to expect, but there is a long pause before we begin the discussion as the final point... Read More
