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.

Miss Mortification ,


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

The Best!

Each show is of such high quality. And M Bragg is a brilliant host, constantly moving the dialogue forward.
All the guests are experts in their respective fields and they want to be clear in their explanations. At the end of each show you will always want more.
A weekly education. You will never be disappointed.
