Very interesting and thought provoking podcast.

This is one of the few podcasts I’ve gotten into “on the ground” so to speak. And it is so interesting and engrossing that I’ve immediately started to suggest it to everyone I know that liked podcasts. And even some people that don’t ! My only complaint about is is the music bits tend to be much plunder than the voices. So much so that I have to turn down the sound for a bit and then turn it back up constantly.

Very stimulating!

I have absolutely loved this podcast! It’s well-researched, thorough, intellectually stimulating, completely unique, and not polluted with a bunch of partisan political slant and irrelevant snark. It’s a refreshing departure from the headlines for a look at what’s actually going on in the world. Every time I listen, it opens my eyes and turns on my brain. And it just has a lot of content, which is really amazing considering the quality of research and production that goes into each episode. I give “Power Corrupts” my highest recommendation!
