Relies heavily on re-runs

So many re-runs...stop posting re-runs as if they’re new episodes.

Thought-provoking, well-done

I love this podcast—the topics are fresh and interesting and Shankar delves into each story with a real desire to understand whatever he’s discussing. The stories aren’t superficial rehashes of stuff I’ve already read about in the NY Times...I’m always intrigued and surprised and gain new insights. Keep ‘em coming—and thanks.
