Digging deeper than the headlines

Thank you guys for digging deeper and making me more knowledgeable!

Amazing how much of pop culture and accepted wisdom that we accept without even knowing their origins or repercussions today.

Great jump-off point for research into stuff you didn't even know you would be interested in.

I recommend this podcast in the similar vibe to 'Reply All' '99 percent invisible' with a wide range of topics.

Enjoy, fellow podcast listeners!

More crass production values from NPR

Why do these people value the words they write and the ideas they convey so lightly that they have to overdub everything with intrusive music?? Am I the only one who hates this dumbing down! LET ME LISTEN TO THE CONTENT! In just the same way as mainstream media polluted our TV with picture-in-picture and one or more tickertapes running across every screen, now they are spoiling the podcast genre with their crazy production values. Enough, already.

Outstanding!

This has quickly become my favourite podcast show. It’s so well researched and put together. I can’t recommend this podcast enough.
