Thank you

I came across Mr. Carrol on the JRE and in my opinion he is an interesting individual and offers a great podcast.

Physics = Great! Political episodes = not so much.

Sean's episodes concerning physics are most excellent. He gets beyond a typical news/blog article and is able to discuss the content accurately and intelligently.

Sean's political episodes are not worth your time. He seems to have no additional information or insight beyond that of your typical obnoxious fb friend. He makes claims that anyone with even a slight acquaintance with history or journals knows to be false and can't seem to get beyond the basics: conservatives = always bad, progressives = always good. I really recommend just deleting any episode not physics related - listen to pod save america for that instead.
