It’s pretty good
I stopped downloading episodes also after Manoush took over from Guy. I agreed with the other review by catlegken2020… my attention was not held. It seemed like too many liberal socialist issues have crept into TED podcasts and protester issues.
Remember… it is always best and more professional to hire and promote people on their abilities, experience and professionalism instead of promoting people based on their gender and/or race. Goodbye.
I subscribed to this podcast for many years and have reluctantly realized that losing Guy has had a much more negative impact on this show than I anticipated. Manoush tries hard to make this interesting, but cannot keep my attention. I am unsubscribing and deleting, after many devoted years. A shame.
