Interesting

I always learn something. Shankir’s voice is nice to listen to. Nice that they interview various people. I wait for the next episode to be made each time.

Great potential but basic

The episode titles and descriptions sound utterly fascinating, however so often I’m disappointed by the ‘experts’ interviewed. Much of the information presented in each episode is common sense, or common knowledge, rather than interesting insights of the ‘hidden brain’. This podcast is at times frustratingly basic, only scratching the surface of potentially fascinating topics.
