Worth your time

The biggest challenge now with the amount of content is to find something worth your time. I came across this podcast while doing research for a Capstone project for a Harvard short course certificate. It was so worth it. Very thoughtful interrogation of the ideas, clear presentation no hype and marketing teased out lots of information. Great resource.
