I give this podcast 5 stars

I rarely write podcast reviews but I was compelled to after crying my eyes out at Episode 20. I have loved this podcast from the start, though. The calming cadence of John’s voice, his poetic writing, subtle humour and his ability to make the most unexpected topics really interesting make this podcast one of my all time favourites. Keep up the great work!

Out on its own

I listened to the latest episode (Capacity for Wonder and Sunsets) while pounding out the miles on an elliptical at the gym.
As so often with this podcast, I was drawn in to a world of deep thought, wide reading and great quotes which led, by way of the Great Gatsby, the nature of religious belief, the scattering of light in the atmosphere and a brown oak leaf, to a new perspective on the beauty, sadness, happiness and value of all life.
When the episode culminated, after a massive build-up, with "I give sunsets 5 stars" I said "Yes!" then had to apologise to the people around me when I realised I had said it out loud.
This podcast makes my life better. There is nothing remotely like it and I love it, unreservedly.

Fantastic podcast

Insightful, beautiful and moving. Would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to examine our society in minute detail. Future review idea: Auld Lang Syne please!
