Extremely interesting, well researched podcast. Kudos to the hosts / journalists for getting the interviews they did. One note I would add is that the music choices and mixing weren’t as strong as some other NPR pods I’ve listened to - relied on intentionally off-putting distorted guitars after certain interviewees which seemed designed to shape your perceptions of the previous quote.
