Nice to know there are solutions

I’m happy that this podcast exists because I’ve had enough doom and gloom, let’s solve some problems here

Not that groundbreaking

I was excited by the premise of this podcast and a couple of the topics have been good, but most of them don’t actually seem to be all that innovative or actually solvable. “We’re working on this” is nice, but there isn’t a clear action plan to achieve it for most of the issues, without major government or social change, which is what is discouraging about these problems in the first place.

Solvable

I’ve been a faithful listener of all episodes and I’m beginning to worry the quality is beginning to slip. From the beginning, Solvable was touted as a “how to,” a practical discussion of equally practical ways of tackling what seemed intractable social problems. The first episode met and exceeded expectations, as the discussion both provided a great overview of the big picture and “descended into the partículars,” to use Malcolm Gladwell’s phrase. Subsequent episodes, however, have been increasingly less organized and leave you with a sense of what the guest has accomplished, not necessarily how is the problem in the subject “solvable” in a practical sense. I sense the information is in the interview since hints of it are given at the end of the podcast. Recommend re-listening to each episode, outlining the structure and content of the presentation, and comparing them. I’m convinced you will notice a marked difference that progressively erodes the value you are trying to offer with the podcast.
