Good story - bad editing / ads

I wanted to love this but echo that it’s practically unlistenable due to the start/ stop replay of several openings due to ads. I had to skip episodes. The 9th episode literally had 20 mins of stop/start replay at the start. It’s too bad.

Worth listening

All other reviews about advertisement glitches are true. And it can be frustrating. I’ve noticed closing the app and reopening helps. Hopefully kinks are worked out, but in the mean time, be patient with glitches and enjoy this fascinating and thought provoking show.

not hearing the ads/editing problems

I have not had the ad problems people are complaining about. Listening on an iPhone 6 with iOS 12 🤷‍♀️ Great podcast, wonderful storytelling, fascinating subject.
