Fantastic storytelling and journalism

I just binged the latest season. I was drawn in immediately. The podcast was well researched and provided excellent journalism -balanced and educational. I so appreciated the fact that the facts were presented and the story was told without the podcasters incessantly inserting themselves, their politics or their opinions. It was also a beautiful tribute to Pravin Varughese’s family and friends.

Exceptional journalism!

One of the first podcasts that I couldn’t wait to hear the next episode. Been listening to them for years, and it’s the reason I found Javier’s other podcast, Pretend.
