Deeply substantial and amazingly practical

It’s obvious Will and the KNKX team put extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear is still mind-blowing Every. Single. Time.

No matter the subject, you’re guaranteed to gain something from every episode - can’t recommend Transmission‬ enough 🙌

Brilliant, moving, fascinating podcast

I admire the care the team is taking with this. Reporters are some of the best, and the people they talk to obviously trust them, much appreciated in these times.

A reluctance overcome

I was reluctant to transition to Transmission because its predecessor, Outsiders, WAS SO GOOD. However, I invested the emotional energy to give this podcast a chance. I am so glad I did. I can’t believe how the landscape of Coronavirus has been traversed. The choice of stories to tell stands out. While I want the world to rid itself of Covid-19 NOW, I also appreciate the attention the Transmission team pays to its subjects.
