One of the finest hours on radio

Host Laurie Taylor manages to extract the essential information from each topic - most of which fall under the umbrella of Cultural Studies.

Topics and perspectives not found elsewhere

There are many very good podcasts nowadays but sometimes it seems like there is a sameness in the subject matter. This program, which explores interesting niches of sociological research, is quite distinct and thoughtful. The host is erudite and witty and engages a unique roster of guests.

Makes sociology entertaining

I hope the show's producer's don't see "entertaining" as an insult. It's not fluffy by any means, but rather an insightful, well-researched show on topics that anyone would find interesting. Laurie Taylor is a brilliant interviewer and they manage to find academics who speak about their work in an accessible way. There's a good dose of humour and even the listener mail segments are well done. I recommend this to everyone who likes podcasts.
