Insightful, interesting and always thought provoking

I always love these podcasts but as a woman, the one I think that I was most shocked and grateful for was the “in the heat of the moment” one. Thank you so much Hidden brain team for enlightening us an hour at a time.

Hooked

I love everything about this podcast. Thought-provoking. Inspiring. Everything down to the last detail (even the sound effects) make it a pleasant listen.

My favourite podcast host

One of the first podcasts I ever listened to & now one of my favourites. Shankar is the best host; he asks the questions you want to ask, is funny and perceptive but best of all, human and not too serious. I love the topics & always excited to see the latest episode.
