My favourite podcast
Need I say more?
Excellent show to learn how industries work
This show gives great insights into random worlds and industries. Its great to know a little more of how the gears of the world turn.
Episode suggestion! I work in film and we work ridiculously long hours. I would love to understand how exactly its cost effective for production companies to create these shows and pay the extreme overtime wages to all their workers. Thanks!
Very good listening
Fantastic podcast. Very informative stories, love the creativity behind each episode. It’s an intelligent podcast with effortless listening. A ten year old and a professor could listen to this show and enjoy it equally.
I will say however, episode 1475, the Janet Jackson episode, I’m cringing every time the host says “y’all”
