Audio Quality Needs Improving

The content of the podcast is worth listening too, but the audio quality is terrible. Each contributer needs to have their won mic

1-dimensional, unsophisticated, superficial

Where’s the skepticism? the in-depth analysis? I was told these hosts were journalists, which usually implies some command of the issues. Instead, we get “wow gee whiz gosh ain’t that surprising huh weird what’ll happen next I don’t know oh well guess we’ll have to wait and see.” Two stars for effort, Star Tribune, but the product is about as lousy as the rest of the paper.

Informative, interesting

I'm impressed with the knowledge shared in this podcast. Information is always interesting, deep, and well expressed.
