This podcast is amazing! The reporters really strive to understand their subjects and to help us listeners understand them as well. All episodes are interesting, even the ones where I initially think that I’m not that interested in the topic, I am still instantly drawn in. Gold standard! Thank you for a brilliant podcast!
