Great discussions

This podcast is getting us through a long road trip from northern nsw to Melbourne! Great topics and interesting ideas very well presented. Some times the guests a little bit hard to follow but Dr Siobhan Oā€™Sullivan does a great job of trying to ensure they make their ideas accessible to the non-academic listeners. Totally recommend
