The best podcast in the world

IOT has been the undisputed champion of information programming since the turn of the millennium. Melvyn Bragg has access the greatest minds in the UK who are all experts in history, science, philosophy & literature. No other podcast even comes close to this level of brilliance.

Every show has so much

The no-nonsense and well-paced discussion format that gives ample room to guests to share what they know is so rare in podcasts or radio. High quality shows on topics familar and new.

Very enlightening podcast with lots of interesting conversations. It’s super hard not to feel like the host is quite arrogant at times though. He scoffs at certain ideas like he is so above it all. It’s rather insulting to anyone who may not agree with the position being taken on the given topic.
Maybe I’m reading into things too much but that’s the sense i get at times. Still worth a listen though. Thanks
