James O'Brien: "I'm delighted to be hooking up with which clearly shares both my passion for a good debate and the belief that professional pundits and pontificators rarely have the most interesting things to say. I'm also excited that listeners to my radio show will now be able to see my face which, let's face it, constitutes a considerable treat for them."

Andy West, Co-founder and Director of said: " will deliver the raw, unedited, unbiased and more importantly uncensored views of LBC 97.3 FM listeners.
