Deep and funny

The two hosts are thoughtful and reflective without being pompous or superficial. They succeeed in showing the listener, a different and unique perspective, never preaching, just probing and prodding. There are a few laughs but i mainly listen for the psychological insights and the calm collected approach to conversation.
