Excellent podcast

As a book reader, I enjoy this podcast immensely. Trey is an excellent host and interviewer; he knows how to let the guest speak and share their views
I highly recommend this podcast and I’m now a frequent listener. Great job and five stars.

Great conversations

This podcast provides a richer context for the books I’ve read. Really great and deep discussions without being pretentious. Really well done

PHARMA interesting episode

I just discovered this pod and glad I did. Fascinating how EVIL the Sacklers are and the phrase “ The man who drugged the WORLD”
Popped into my head when Gerald Posner told us about how Arthur Sackler made Valium the #1 drug for a record 15 yrs with deceptive marketing. Now to explore more episodes 👍👍
