Superbly thought- provoking and inspiring

Fantastic series that really makes you think about and re-evaluate modern life. The interviews with the young people are even better than the ones with some of the world’s greatest contemporary philosophers! Should have been commissioned for tv too.

Keep it to Rabbi Sacks's without the audio blurbs

I really enjoyed Rabbi Sacks's longer interviews with such interesting people but there were two things I felt were less successful:
- the short introductions to each podcast were infuriating and felt really infantilising. Perhaps they would have been less annoying in Rabbi Sacks's voice, but I really don't think there needs to be a summary played first.
- the structure was quite repetitive. Eg there was one episode in there were extracts of interviews with experts on AI and conversations with teenagers, followed by two episodes which were longer conversations with each of the experts. That felt really repetitive and was a pattern followed throughout the series.

Very Interesting

I listened to the shows in Radio 4 and went looking for this podcast. Rabbi Sachs offers some very interesting discussions from a variety of modern thinkers, teachers and students. It has led me to look at my own view of the world and contributed to how I define my role within it.
The discussions of how the youth are staying younger for longer is evident in some of the interactions with the school kids but the majority of the content is very good.
