Fantastic questions

This podcast is really insightful and Stuart asks fantastic questions at the right time.

He does a good job of letting the people talk and getting them to rant. This is important because these intellectuals can get out the information in full without leaving out major pieces that can help the listeners to understand better.

I think that he dives into a more broad perspective of this as to learn about the many different moving pieces and I connect with that!

Great guests and topics but host could ask better questions

I wish the host would ask more follow-up questions. I find myself yelling out loud, “ask them WHY they said that or believe that!” Instead the host tends to just say, “that’s interesting” a lot and then moves on to his next question.
