Good content but too much filler

The interviews are excellent and the content is good. However there is so much filler that I usually skip the first 10 minutes to check if they're getting on to the topic. I also understand that a lot of people like the quote-narrate-quote-narrate editing style, but to me it feels like someone talking during a movie.

Scripted and fantised

Doesn’t feel authentic, I wouldn’t take advise from these fabricated stories that make everyone involved look good. I want to hear the authentic, raw stories and interviews. Also I can’t take the narrator’s tone seriously.
