Seasons 1 and 2 are good, but then...

...I've become so deeply disappointed in this show. DEEPLY. I continued to listen even though I was troubled by the emerging slant of the show. Now it just makes me angry with consitently poor reasoning and a curious refusal to really interroagate their own position. If you want to listen to a great episode, try "Entanglement" in season 1. If you want to get intellectual whiplash follow it up "Emotions". It's like they are from different podcasts .I think I kept listening because I hoped Lulu Miller would come back and save the show, but clearly that's not happening. Sad, because I used to highly recommend the show and now I feel I should wave people off.

Fan of the show but skip S05E05

Always been a fan of this show but they really just lost me with "A Very Offensive Rom Com". The 'offense' is self referential to the episode, but they still think it's cute. Such shallow and disturbing thinking in this one. It ends with a woman self-inflicting some kind of racial desire conversion therapy to prove what point? Still unsure because of how reductionist their ideas of desire and human sexuality are.

Entertaining, Informative, Engaging

Relevant topics, articulate, empathetic hosts, engaging production (maybe slightly overkill at times with the effects, but very forgivable). The research that goes into each episode is impressive and I actually absorb the information being shared, and find myself referencing episodes in conversation and googling things I learn about on the show. In my opinion, its really up there with all of the best podcasts: Criminal, Earhustle, 99PI, etc.
