Alvaro, Spain ,

Fantastic podcast!!! Keep making more.

I only began listening to the podcast two days ago and I’ve already listened to about ten episodes. I am writing this during the COVid-19 crisis and I must say, this podcast has made me happier during a pretty dark time. I love how you address the audience in a captivating and insightful way. I’m 13 years old and I’m always looking for good sources that are reliable and rich in valuable information but that are also not too boring and flat and this is exactly that. A source of education that approaches perfection. “philo sofía”

The first podcast I’ve ever binged-listen

I started from Episode #1 at the end of 2019 and I’ve enjoyed every second of it. I’ve learned so much, in such an easy and approachable format… I couldn’t recommend it enough.
