Max Reckmann ,

delightful and highly relevant!

This podcast is wonderful! In fact calling it a podcast might be underselling it - literally - it is as carefully written as a book that i would absolutely pay money for. Though having Stephen narrate these grand stories in his voice, needless to say, is priceless.

It’s a sort of commentated chronology of the very much ongoing history of the many strategies humans have evolved to transmit Information - arguably the very capability that sets us apart from the other inhabitants of our world.

It reminds me of the book Sapiens in its objective and like Harari’s general overview of human history i think this podcast is very well suited (though certainly not exclusively) for curious young adults looking for a bit of an introductory stepping stone - a vantage point, as it were, to reflect on the nature of our existence.

Enjoy, i certainly did!
