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.

So wonderful

I love this podcast. It is so thought-provoking. Just when I think I know the subject, they present another side to open my mind further.

Keep at it

What a great show. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to knowledge. I loved this recent talk about gay rights. I wish I had shared it with my daughter. It's so important to educate early in life. We live in a very rural closed minded area and prejudice is very prevalent in her school. Just hearing about tolerance makes me feel better that the country is progressing. Thank you!
