fabulously informative

This is a great show. Interesting topics discussed with humor and good info

Cogent, concise, useful

I found this by way of Marketplace, and it uses a similar if slightly more casual journalistic style. Episodes are well-researched and explore multiple points of view on varied subjects. Hosts are personable and charismatic but still professional enough to get their information across clearly.

The best!

You have the very best podcast. You pick on interesting subjects. You ask smart questions. You get smart people to be the "talking heads" to answer your questions. (I particularly like when you have on Quartz reporters.) You don't insult the audience's intelligence. Your clarity and production values are good. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, YOU GUYS!!!
