Great content, frowned out by too many ads

The show, the host, and the guests are great. Very interesting, thoughtful, and nuanced takes on technology issues. But the balance between content and ads is off. Half of the episode is ads. The content should be longer to balance out all of the ad breaks. For every 4-5 minutes of discussion, there’s a 4 minute ad break.

23 and Me Propaganda

A whole episode with one of the 23 and Me spokespeople? Come on. You'd think all the regular advertising would be enough money.

Informative

Very good podcast. I enjoy variety of subjects provided by host. Keep up good work. Gentle feedback:I love host’s wealth of knowledge, humor and experience. Please work on speaking slower. Sometimes a little hard keeping up with what is being said.
