Great but needs to be longer

Love this podcast, sometimes too US centric for myself being British but that’s the nature of the subject and there’s often more globally relevant tech/culture/China episodes that are more interesting to me.

However, I would love to see far longer episodes where the guest is allowed to speak as long as they want on their topic. The ~1 hour limit feels restrictive, with moving to the next question coming before letting the conversation flow more naturally. I think the occasional 3 hour+ episode would be great, especially if the hosts are able to speak more themselves. I was originally introduced to saagar through the lex Fridman podcast in which he spoke for several hours. This really help highlight his extensive knowledge and passion for all things historical and political, hugely boosting my respect for him.

Marshall and Saagar are on to a real winning formula here and I’m excited to see how the podcast and other projects the hosts are involved in continue to evolve.
