Knowledgable Interesting and entertaining

I really enjoy this podcast, Isabella Rosner is knowledgeable and entertaining and that is a difficult trick to pull off. Her guests are fascinating and well chosen. She makes the best of them and gets them to articulate thoughts and information abut a variety of subjects that can’t be found in many other podcasts.
