Very enjoyable

If you like Chris Hayes' show, this is Chris unfiltered. Very engaging, very enjoyable. I used to listen to over 30 podcasts. Life has changed so I have time for five now. This is one of the five.

Food for Thought

I listen to a lot of podcasts, I mean A LOT of podcasts but not many help me to connect to various authors, political figures & Trail Blazers like this one. It’s a podcast that makes you think critically, challenges your assumptions & makes you want to learn more. My only complaint is I now spend so much money on books ☺️. I’m still waiting for my child welfare focused pod but other than that this is a must listen pod for me.

This podcast is so worth my time

Highly informative. I have purchased and read more books on several topics that I would not necessarily have been interested in. Thanks, Chris!
