Fantastic

Just like their prior podcasts using a similar format..."x things that made the world", etc, BBC has nailed this. Almost every one of these has information that I found fascinating and useful. The episode on tinned food for some reason does not play on my phone..Thanks BBC.

My Favorite Podcast

I stumbled upon this podcast in 2018 and it captured my mind very quickly. Tim Harford has a soothing voice and is able to condense the topics into fascinating, easily digestible and poignant podcasts that never really seem to get old.
