Interesting & informative

Great podcast if you're an eager learner. Host has pleasing demeanor and sounds like Dr. Phlox on Enterprise. Keep up the good work.

Completely enjoyable

I wish this podcast’s episodes were longer! I love listening. I work from home and I love the thought of actually learning new things and listening to the host interview interesting people while I work. Or shower. Or go for a walk. Multi- tasking!

In addition, this podcast looks at mental health in a realistic and relatable way. Very few of us encounter a homicidal maniac during the day, unless you count teenagers and small children, but we all have some sort of quirk and live with and work with and love and hate ppl that have issues that are a little more than just quirks. Knowing how and why people behave the way they do helps us understand their motivation for their actions and understanding promotes empathy. Understanding your own motivation for your actions brings self awareness and healthier relationships.

Thank you so much!

Terrible

He sounds like the boring teacher that made me skip psych class in college because the teacher sucked but for reason was never fired. This podcaster rambles on and on about -- I don't know what, that's the problem. I clicked on the one about "is your dog really smart" - the podcast was 40 minutes long, but it took him 35 minutes to get to the point. Just terrible. Then I clicked on 5 reasons why Casey Anthony may be innocent and again, most of the podcase was about rambling on about nothing having to do with the subject matter -- jokes that weren't funny, etc.
