The irony in giving a review podcast 5 stars

I went into the podcast wondering how would one review facets of human life and wouldn’t that be quite narcissistic and pretentious? As a fan of his books, I really should have knewn better. I have never had such an emotive response to a podcast, it successfully communicates the beauty of how fragile life is and also how wondrous that we are that experience it at all. Give any episode a go, they do not need to be in sequence. It is a little ironic to review a review podcast but I’ll give this 5 stars in a heartbeat.

Beautiful

This podcast is so well written and spoken, that I can not explain how much I like it with any words of my own. I feel incapable of explaining.

I give The Anthropocene Reviewed 5 stars.
