Thoughtful content bad production

Thoughtful content although it can comes across as hectoring and intolerant “obviously x is right but I will patronisingly allow that y might have merit”

Also of late the sound levels seem to be off - maybe because of all the guest hosts with bad audio?

Deep Dives By Great Guys (tm)

It's a great show. Intelligently expressed views from people who have good brains but also good hearts. The deep dive aspect means you always hear something you hadn't thought of or encountered before, and I find when the hosts agree it's a delight and when they don't it's still a delight because they raise such good points and debate them so amiably.
