Could be better.

A large portion of each episode is dedicated to recapping. Americans might need this, but I don’t.

So repetitive

Short episodes with very little new content, if any, after the never ending recaps & repetition. An intriguing story disappointingly presented like a vague magazine tabloid piece instead of some of the proper investigative podcasts around.

Poor journalism

The interviewer puts words into the mouths of her subject
Doesn’t do the serious topic justice
