I listen to these on my runs and they are up to date, interesting and I really enjoy them. Good variety of topics (well mainly COVID-19 right now).

Love Black coat - white art: dislike advertisements!

I understand advertisements are needed, but at least have a signal to indicate when Brian or guest has stopped talking and the ad has started. It always takes me a second or two to recognize the break. “Under the age of persuasion” podcast says “... and we will be right back ..”. Simple. Understandable. Easy.
