  • Most extraordinary

    One of at least the top 5 regularly broadcast podcasts I listen to. Sometimes the episode titles and descriptions are a turn off, as they tend to be teasery rather than informative. Some of the episodes blurbs threaten to be a bit “worthy” or “woke” even for me. But everyone episode I listen to is even handed, excellent, thought provoking and enthralling. Thank you so much.

  • One sided presentation

    Just listened to prison for protesting. Absolutely no use of science. Simply a mouthpiece for the protestors. Soft questioning. I heard nothing except justifications for the protestors side. No argument at all presented for why the jail sentence was so high. more

    Would be a much better platform if so many of the guests didn’t voice fry. It is off putting to say the least.
