  • Highlight of my week

    A brilliant, insightful and thought provoking podcast that goes beneath the surface film of current affairs or the quotidian to address existential and moral matters. These guys absolutely rock!

  • Keeps me thinking hard

    Seeing one or two controversial reviews here .. seems Aussies still have this anti-intellectualism attitude in Australia .. I love that I don’t always get it at first but this podcast makes me think HARD and contemplate .. great brain food for the mind ! How can you not love Waleed’s soothing voice ..?

  • Ideas bank fest.

    If you like listening to the self-appointed smartest men in the room, you’ll love this intelligentsia banker festival between two blokes who are so high on their own supply, they need a parachute from their superior intellectual altitude. It’s precocious, pretentiousness all the way to 11.

  • Worthwhile listening.

    I listen regularly but Scott Stephens tends to dominate the conversation and I want him to stop talking and let the guest and Waleed Aly speak more. He makes valid points but he takes so long to make them.

    A huge fan. Need an episode on the virtues of Prog rock. Really enjoying the “Not quite a book club” specials. Great fun.
