My Top Podcast

Quality articles and opinions on a great variety of topics. Relevant content per minute ratio way above the average podcast!

Stop pushing Philip Morris

The content is what one would expect from Economist, but it’s the adverts from Philip Morris are not a little nauseating. Would have expected a bit more judgment from The Economist than to have a cigarette peddler trying to position itself as a “science-based” company.

I am afraid to say that The journal is becoming old

Some of the ideas are not very up to date or open.
