More than just sound-bites
I have been listening to Ockham's Razor for three years now, and I am thankful for the broad range of topics that this program explores. The 10+ minute format allows a range of very passionate people to dive into topics that invite contemplation. I find myself discussing with my friends and colleagues what I learn on this show -- a sign of good radio show/podcast.
I have listened to this podcast for at least 3 years. More and more, it features talks that are related to climate change, sometimes directly and sometimes not. While I am totally convinced that man has a definite part in what is happening to our climate, his gloom and doom finally got to me. This podcast was deleted from my feed and I will no longer be listening to it.
