Content and perspective of guests can be greatly updated and diversified

I’ve checked in with this podcast periodically over the years and have found too many of the guests belong to white privileged classes. The perspectives and insights of the topics and guests can be greatly diversified and updated to reflect current class, cultural, and gender perspectives.
For example, the last episode was about marriage and the visual loss experience. The couple they choose to interview provided superficial answers and were not able to talk deeply about the emotional experience of being blind and married. The man, after 40 years of vision loss, still refuses to use his cane while walking with his wife. This shows how much he refuses to fully face being blind. But he did not acknowledge that and chose to talk about sailing. In my opinion, guests holding intersectiona experiences would provide conversations with more depth and wisdom.
