This podcast deserves the opportunity for viewer/listener comments.

Please find a way for the audience to comment. I’ve waited decades for this series having read it as a high-school freshman in the 80s. The podcast for episode 5 neglected to mention Asimov’s own love of science and math in particular, having written numerous articles collected into a book “Asimov on Numbers”. Overall this is an excellent companion but please find a way for audience participation on this medium. The series deserves it. Love the whole thing so far.

Well done Apple, you got the best Podcast host in the biz

Happy to hear Jason hosting a “books to show series” again! His podcast format, episode summaries, and show pacing is second to none. You can tell he’s an actual fan of the books/content yet has enough restraint to allow the guests to contribute and fill the shows. Now we’re just missing Mallory’s big/complementary personality.
