Fascinating, enthralling and very enjoyable! Everyone should listen to this podcast.

I adore this podcast. It’s basically a very smart, well educated and goodhearted guy reading his fascinating and illuminating writings on mental health and societal phenomena that affect it, and it will open your eyes to why things are the way they are. It’s very intellectually stimulating and enlightening and I am currently binge listening to all the episodes. I wish everyone in America would listen to it! Bravo, David!!
