Great range of impressive well-know speakers and authors

I really found, upon first subscribing, the content of a lot of these podcasts are essential listening for anyone interested in culture, society, politics and the environment!

Wanted ...

... more sources offering the quality and range of this unbeatable series. The quality varies, of course, but only from 4.5 stars to 5. Some are sublime - doubters are referred to number 49. The whole series offers a finely balanced and fascinating view, sometimes highly amusing, sometimes deeply serious, of the world of human affairs.
