I am in love with Shankar

His voice, his mind, his heart. This podcast makes me think and feel. He is a beacon of hope - a testimony to being a thoughtful, kind human being - a productive member of society. Thank you.

Quite an intriguing podcast.

Yes, this podcast is from NPR so some (as evidenced by some reviews) would assume it’s just “left leaning” drivel but it’s really very middle of the road and moderate and discusses topics we may gloss over.

It’s quite well done and isn’t afraid to talk about things that some find unconventional.

Give it chance if you’re on the fence. I look forward to more episodes.

Shamelessly Left-Leaning

You’d think a purportedly science-based podcast would be devoid of politics. Nope! The host and guests show their left-leaning bias in every episode. I got so fed up I unsubscribed and deleted it. Just give us the science, folks! We’re all pretty tired of political bias.
