Was good, now not

Most of those in the first year were good, a few great. I dropped out because other Podcasts had more consistent quality. Gave them another try recently and wonder what happened. This season they’re light, confusing, research poor and badly edited.

The empathy episode was a mess. To the producer, your expert wasn’t against empathy, but said it shouldn’t be one sided. And the woman looking for a job acted like my 12 year old, with her feelings that it was only right to have empathy with people she agreed with. And the endless back and forth by the host on whether she was wrong was tedious. And the rom com episode was probably worse, but I gave up on it half way.

This show really needs an editor and maybe drop a little data in now and then instead of just cute anecdotes.

Love this podcast

One of my favorite podcasts, brings attention to things I wouldn’t of thought of in creative ways. I also appreciate all the research and work that’s put into it.
