Love this podcast

I love this podcast. Molly and Kai work so well together and present the topics in an educational and entertaining manner. Keep up the good work - I get to learn and laugh along the way.

OMG!! Too much OMG!!

I have been a listener since about halfway through the first season and I have been a little disappointed in the direction the show has gone. It almost seems like the focus is on Molly’s personality, her shock, her awe, her knowledge and lack of knowledge depending on the subject. Kai seems to be moving more into the background. I think when the show talks about big issues like the series on capitalism that it did, it shines very brightly. The questions and the interplay between Molly and Kai during that series was wonderful because of their different points of view. I still plan on listening, but it’s not quite as compelling as it once was.

I look forward to the new podcast each week

I am not a techie or an economist, but I want to understand what is going on in both of those worlds. This podcast fills me in, in an engaging, conversational way. Kai and Molly clearly have wide-ranging knowledge of their subjects, but their banter, which some reviewers disparage, gives me context and allows me to feel as though I’m part of a thoughtful discussion, not sitting through a dry lecture trying to winkle out the important bits.
