Interesting, a must listen, great sci-fi podcast

A great podcast, interesting and informative. Mr Barr-Curty (interviewer) is always informed and has researched his interviewees. Always read the books he is talking about and usually others books by the author.

Deep and light hearted at the same time

It may take a few episodes to get used to The quirky nature of the host, guests and the show. But then The pod tends to hook you and you find yourself a loyal listener. David is a thinker and i like his short, educated, sniping commentary on various topics. At the same time he has this subtle sense of humor that leaves me in stitches sometimes. 5 star solid. I wish all older episodes from before they moved to WIRED were still available.
