Bafflingly bad and good

It’s impossible to fathom how Philosophy Now allowed this presenter to lead these podcasts.

The blokey-laddish faux-thick disorganised style/tone of explaining the issues and questioning the guests are more than annoying and banal, and often spiral off into almost complete incoherence. And we also have to suffer his dire tastes in music, in disruptive breaks that happen for no obvious reason.

Nonetheless, when he’s not burbling on the guests and their insights are typically good and thoughtful. So recommended - through gritted ears.

Opened my Eyes About Injustice of no 0 Star Rating

Arrogant, doesn't understand, doesn't listen, puts forward own views instead of passive- biased

Could be better

Heard two podcasts- quantum theory- the guest was confronted by not just ignorance but hasty ignorance, and the Buddhism, where they found someone who was not a practising Buddhist but had read about it. Lofty aims in both programmes but wide of the mark. I would recommend philosophy bites instead.
