So happy to hear my professor giving an interview ☺️

Great stories viewed differently

This is a great podcast, which does not only tell great stories, but also makes you understand that thinking you know, may not mean that you are thinking correctly.

Also, I have no understanding of why ppl would leave a bad review. Great and objective knowledge for free - it seems some people just want to hear what they think they already know

simply great and valuable

It is surely one of the best podcasts out there!
Provides so much value and insight, that I even donated for smth that is provided for FREE!
If it had a paid subscription I would pay for it, it is THAT good!
