Pretty interesting

I like the topics and the short, digestible pod lengths. My only issue is that I don't like the host's reading voice. I wish it wasn't a reading voice.

Educational

I have been listening to this podcast for several years and have really enjoyed it. Yes on occasion there is an episode that I’m not interested in, but I simply move on to the next episode and don’t make a big deal out of it like some of the other reviewers on here. For those complaining that Lauren talks too fast/slow you can always adjust the playback speed in your podcast app. The only issue I have with this podcast is it’s supposed to be a daily podcast, yet they will go over a month at times without releasing a new episode, then all of a sudden release like 25 episodes all on the same day. This is kind of annoying because I feel like I have to play “catch up“. I’d rather they just release one episode a day like they used to, instead of dumping an entire months worth of episodes on us all at once.

Good show

It's all right to listen to. Although the repeats are frequent.
