Hooked from the very first episode!

Gripping podcast with a fascinating story! Loved listening to this and the hosts were superb!

Short of breath?

One of the hosts seems to always be short of breath, taking gasping inhalations… 😂 Otherwise, interesting pod. Would love the eps to be a bit longer. I’m guessing with all the interviews they’d have a lot more content.

Interesting

I can’t help but think that given how much impact Lenny had on students, does it really matter if he completed a degree? Ultimately he seemed to have done a great job from the students perspective. It does not seem like
the worst thing to happen tbh. Production is good and still curious to listen. Thanks
