Insightful, professional and entertaining

Great job by the reporter and her team to delve through so much material and present us with a coherent and engaging podcast.

Beautiful show!!!

I am a 50-year-old white lawyer from Australia. I think that about Obama is the closest thing we have seen to Jesus in a long time. Is so amazing and beautiful. This podcast captures so much of that easy and sheer competence. The presenter is funny and smart, and they’ve done a beautiful job of telling the story. Lots of great interviews with those involved in his life. Highly recommend it! (Making Oprah is also really great!)
