  • Maybe the best NZ podcaster

    Bernard has a knack for communication. His delivery is friendly and relaxed. He makes heavy and complicated topics easy to grasp. His guests are interesting. The content is relevant to kiwis and often quite important or worth knowing about. I’m learning heaps from this podcast.

  • Poor expert content

    Very poorly written episode on emissions. The subject matter expert didn’t fully understand their subject or have a full grasp of the science.
