I adore this podcast and the wonderful woman that put it together. It’s entertaining, thought provoking and bloody good fun.
Keep up the amazing work ladies. Keep challenging my thinking and making me have to stop in the street as I’m laughing so much that I might wee a little xx

I loved Standard Issue’s previous print format and was very sad when it came to an end but I think I love the podcast even more! Entertaining and informative. Quite expensive for me though – I’ve bought a lot of books as a result!

For all women

Absolutely a podcast for all women - a wide variety of articles and discussions - great interviews - funny and honest - the Wednesday issue is great and then you get the chops too - personally I love ‘outside the box’.

Riddled with ads ads ads

How many ads does it take to make a podcast viable? And how many ads does it take to ruin it? I listen to a lot of podcasts and quite enjoy these women BUT the ads ads ads situation on this is a turn off. Has it got worse? I wonder.

Great audio magazine

Love the live shows and podzine. Great to have a range of topics covered from sport to tv and lifestyle but with a strong feminist perspective

Great content. Sound needs vast improvement.

Such interesting and entertaining content, but the sound is consistently bad. Echoes in rooms that make it hard to decipher what people are saying, sudden jumps in levels where one person is miles away from a mic or just speaks quietly. Almost impossible to listen to while driving as any car noise means you just can’t make out what’s being said half the time. I’ve had to skip a few episodes in frustration for this reason. The hard work and great content that goes into this podcast deserves a more professional audio treatment.

Love it

I decided I couldn't take this any more today when out of the wealth of potential insults at your fingertips for Cameron, you chose 'Public school boy'. Oh the cutting-edge commentary - to chose something outside his control; just sloppy and meaningless. And the vocal fry of one of you (not sure who as uou merge into a blandness of views) is unbearable - talk normally!

For everyone

I have been listening to Standard Issue for several months and always find the style hilarious and the topics chosen fascinating - it is like an audio magazine with a focus on championing women doing interesting things. It’s a refreshing format (and I love Dunleavy does Disney!)

I love this, I wish I’d found it sooner. I just can’t listen in public as it’s so funny and really relevant. It makes me feel like it’s ok to be me. Fab.

Have been with you from the very first gig cast all the way back when and love the weekly magazine podcast 😀. You make me laugh, get angry, learn new things that aren't remotely face or hair related, learn about other fantastic podcasts, people & campaigns and help me know I'm not on my own.
Would recommend this podcast to literally ALL women with a pulse.

Fab podcast about issues I’m interested in

These podcasts are informative, insightful and passionate. They are an amazing listen, and represent a real alternative to the spiteful, hateful *bikini body, *too fat *change to get a man ... embarrassments that pass themselves off as women’s magazines.
Funny, intelligent and engaging. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

A bit disappointed with this podcast. Topics are interesting but sound quality is terrible - some interviews sound like they have been recorded in a bathroom. Really hard to listen to in the car due to the fluctuations in volume of the people speaking.

Informative, interesting and relevent.
Only thing is I can't listen while children are around because of the language, and as I have an 11 year old DD it's a shame because some of the subject matter would be really useful to her.

I love this podcast! In a world that can seem saturated with women’s magazines trying to tell me how to wear my hair and what clothes to wear it’s refreshing to listen to a bunch of women discuss real issues we all face with humour and intellect. I often find myself searching for more information on the stories discussed and it has opened my mind.

Brilliant and funny

I always listen to the live shows on the morning commute. Great guests, engaging conversation and a great way to start the day. As stated in some reviews i also struggle with the sound quality, sometimes too quiet

Great content but sound quality quite poor, often can’t hear on my commute which is a real shame.
I would agree with others about the scripted feel but hopefully this will ease up as the podcast goes on.

The Standard Issue podcast never fails to make me laugh and often make me think. It speaks to me and gets me chuckling (often out loud) while walking along with headphones in. I’ve shared it with friends repeatedly when it is another hilarious episode not to be missed.
Thank you and keep making them, your to Bristol please.

Love it!

Educational, informative, entertaining; challenging, inspirational, thought-provoking. Banter, light bickering, frequent guffaws, justifiable outrage. Brilliant. And I’m a middle-aged bloke. How much more fantastic must this be if you’re in their target demographic?!

Subscribing to Standard Issue means I never run out of something entertaining to listen to on a journey. I love the range of topics, some of which I would never have sought out for myself, and many which look at things a different way eg Dunleavy Does Disney. It's daft, it's serious, it's a bit ranty, it's hilarious, it's life-affirming. It's just professional enough and just 'amateur' (whispering 'cos there's other people in the house?) enough to make a really tasty blend. A fine project of Sarah Millican who has picked some great staff to run with the idea.

Absolutely love it (even as a bloke).....but why does Micky say “cue sting” before “Tusk” by fleetwood mac starts as the bush telegraph intro tune. Small but annoys me every week 😂 great pod though, keep up the good work girls 👍

Great show - poor sound quality

Love all of the presenters - and most of the topics. It’s always interesting and fun.
I really wish they would pay some attention to the sound quality, though (the only thing deterring me from giving the fifth star). I can’t listen in the car because the levels of each person/section are too different - I have to turn it up to max to hear some voices then get blasted with a sudden sting.
Having said that, I plan to head to a live recording at some point because the content is aces!
