Good variety

These talks cover a variety of topics of various length that should appeal to a broad audience. Speakers can be funny, quirky, or serious, but all seem to deliver in a clear, understandable way, despite the complexity of the topic. Recommended for anyone interested in learning something new or considering something from a different viewpoint. But for the sake of my cellular data plan, provide an audio version of the talks as well as video.

He seemed to have no public health credentials. Appeared to be peddling mathematical model fantasy. Irresponsible to broadcast.
