Poignant

The first episode of the new series with Ben Rhodes is the most poignant hour of podcasting content I've come across. Just such a privilege to listen in on a conversation with exceptional, decent, humble people who have helped, and continue to make, our world a better place. Thank you.

Like the way this show mixes things up each week

Mixed bag

Some excellent conversations but some poorly edited and rambling and too much opinion with little information. Is Crooked Media spreading itself too thin.
