Fascinating!

Fascinating podcast! The host clearly puts a lot of work into it into every single episode, so the show is consistently high-quality. He always finds interesting ways to look at the topic and he’s naturally good at explaining things in an easily understandable way.

Never disappoints!

Whether I think I’m interested in the topic or not, I learn something surprising and new every time… good for people who are generally inquisitive, covers all sorts of subjects. The pace is steady and precise, so you walk away with the feeling of having absorbed what you listened to. One of the few where I make it a point to catch every episode..

Pretentious delivery

I usually like your topics, but can’t stand listening for more than a few minutes because of your weird, pretentious delivery. Seriously, man. Get a voice coach or just talk like a normal human. If that’s how you always sound, that must be exhausting to those around you.
