  • Too Feminist.

    Would like this podcast but the narrator can’t keep from expressing feminist views. I don’t mind a fair analysis but do not favor opinionated accounts.

  • Minimum commitment, maximum take away

    This podcast is a pleasure to listen to and you don’t have to wade through any blah blah blah to get to the pay off. You learn what was learned before you know it and you’re not left asking yourself pertinent questions about the facility or the validity of the knowledge. The host has a pleasant voice and makes an immediate connection with listeners.
