This is probalby one of the most important radio series ever conceived. The content is not dumbed down - it is up to date, challenging and thought provoking. The whole series needs to be made available as a national treasure.
Actually here is a request (if anybody reads this) why can we not download all the programmes (since most of us only just got an ipod!) - would love to catch up.

Greatest pod ever?

Melvin - what an absolute hero. Been listening for years and expanded my knowledge accordingly, including my favourite book of fiction (Life & Fate) and countless insights into history, science etc. So good!

The host is pretentious

I wish to like this podcast, but the host is so pretentious and even rude that I cannot finish an episode without getting upset.
