I've only been listening since Angela has been host (except for a few back-episodes I checked out). Nothing against her, I think she's a good host and a great comedian in general - she makes some of the blokes on Mock the Week look amateur. But I really don't care for her NewsJack monologues either.
The #metoo soliloquy last season took up nearly a third of the show, for crying out loud.
I've never really properly submitted a serious attempt at a sketch so I can't speak about that side of things, but I likes me one-liners and have been gobsmacked at some of the basic derivative obvious one-liners that have somehow survived the filter.
I'm not saying mine have necessarily been any better, I've definitely sent some stinkers, but some of the tat that gets through is enough to make me weep.
