  • Light and largely data free

    One of my top 3 podcasts several years ago. Then they went full on social justice and it became just another NPR show showing only half the data; so I dropped out for a year or so. Came back recently and was hopeful. Listened to recent shows on food, dating and where AI came from. Just ok. Lots of opinions without backing and very little that's new or not obvious. more
