Excellent

Michael pushes you to think of things in a new way and to question your old beliefs. We don’t always agree, but he’s compelling, entertaining and warm in a way that I didn’t expect.

Profound and witty

The first season of this episode is both fun to listen to and profound. Lewis has put his finger on a disturbing trend in society that was hard to put together before this show. It will make you laugh and smile, and then will stay with you for quite a while.

Just Misses the Mark

This podcast just misses mark. It has great info and exposes a lot of issues with the fairness of our lives. It misses the mark, however, when the host sometimes holds such strong reverence in his point of view he is unwilling to consider alternate views to the point of arrogance. It happens rarely enough that it still makes for a great show.
