Accessible but not simplistic

I first learned of this podcast due to the 10/23/23 crossover episode with the Brom podcast. I wish I’d known of it earlier.

A standout feature are the interludes which explain the more unfamiliar or difficult aspects of the discussion. This allows the main conversation to proceed at a high level without leaving novices behind. I wish more podcasts did this.
