Just brilliant

Really riveting stuff, recommend to everyone!

Could be Even Better

They assemble outstanding people to discuss big issues. Mostly well, although there’s something a bit ‘stilted’ in the format: it’s done with a live audience as if it doesn’t want to be.

But the introductions and endings are amateurishly horrible. Flat tiresome voice reading an overlong boring script badly. Far below what the subject required.

The podcast is also skewed heavily Left. Fine if you want to listen at length to cunning collectivists telling you why you’ll be better off with fewer freedoms.

Makes my commute!

Absolutely love this podcast, I've been to their festival many times and love being able to relive the best debates and talks from past years in bitesize form! The hidden gem of podcasts for anyone that loves debating philosophy and big ideas...
