  • A topical list of articles read by excellent readers. I've really enjoyed the pieces by Phillipa Perry recently dealing with important topics about human connection and what is a meaningful life (without kids).

  • An eclectic mix!

    Just like newspaper you’ll find some articles you love and some you are not so interested in. I mostly listen to the all but occasionally skip the ones less appealing to me. Overall great content which have introduced me to some topics and people I may not have chosen. Given it a go and pause a bit before you skip a chapter.

  • Thought provoking.

    Consistently good and even when I’m really interested in a later story, listening through gives me an opportunity to learn and appreciate stuff that I’d otherwise bypass.
