The Right Place at the Right Time

The philosophy of the non-partisan Commonwealth Club to encourage discussion of topics that we are facing in today’s world is such a needed entity right now. I belong to the CW club and actually get to see and meet many of these speakers live. I enjoy my interactions even when we disagree on policy. We can’t move forward without discussion. Here it is.

Mixed bag

I love some of their presentations (an easy 5 stars!), but some of their series are just not for me. Unfortunately, you either subscribe to them all or none. It can become quite time-consuming going through the list and deleting the individual sessions from the lecture series that don’t interest you. It would be great if there were separate podcasts/subscriptions to their various series, as many other similar organizations do. As much as I enjoy some, the time commitment to delete the others has become too much, so I’ll unfortunately have to unsubscribe.
