Authentic engagement with the world ❤️

John Green can talk about anything. And that’s why this podcast is so engaging. He is invested in sharing, researching and thinking as much as he can about any subject. Short, brilliant, intriguing essays.

Excellent

As always, Green’s podcasts are very engaging. Even if the announced topics do not seem interesting when I see the title, I am drawn in and convinced that they are special when he discusses them. The personal experiences and feelings that he often includes are moving. I find that I usually agree with his ratings – so he’s also persuasive!

Lovely

Touching meditations on many things, carried from the trivial to the serious and back again by honourable honesty. Lovely writing, moving delivery, comforting humanity.
