Worthwhile over and over

This may be the first podcast I have ever listened to multiple times. Insightful, thought provoking and fun.

Worth listening to

I loved every episode except for the last one. They were insightful, educational and extremely interesting. I wish they would have stayed to the same style for the last episode, it was not as good. I found it not as informative and I lost interest in the conversation. Overall, worth listening to!

An incredible podcast

Following in the tradition of 99% invisible, Nice Try is an amazing look at the designs of history... well, the failed designs throughout history. Enjoyed the jaw dropping turns in the Jamestown episode. It’s great to hear a different perspective on things, and the hosts are great to listen to.
