Better & Better

The entire DW catalog is new to me this year and can't get enough. A great way to stay informed while avoiding the senseless and devisive rhetortic that is at every turn in the U.S. right now. Keep on keepin on.

Great Show has a whole new level

I love Spectrum because of the myriad of subjects touched upon, always interesting and relevant, always engaging. And now with Cyrus Farivar as the new host, it's better than ever. I have listened to his work for many years on The World and CBC and have always enjoyed his inquisitive style and friendly voice.

Horrible hosts

What indulgence! They get paid for doing this? They need to improve the content. The interview of the coworker whose husband got bitten by piranhas are not scientific. They also included the shower singing in the gym. Is it relevant? Pure indulgence of the hosts. I listened to a few episodes but just cannot carry on anymore.
