Getting The R Down - Tests that aren't tests, Baby Wilfred, and a chat with a former COVID19 111 call centre worker and APT Gemma Norburn

Thanks to new government methods of numbers not meaning anything, this podcast now has 100,000 listeners a week! You know, if you include all the people who don't listen to it. This week Tiernan (Laddish - The Guardian) looks at tests that aren't, Baby Wilfred BoJo, and the Hancock track app. Plus a chat with a former COVID19 111 call centre worker and another chat (I spoil you I do) with the so very cheery APT Gemma Norburn who talks about being an NHS mortuary worker and cake.
