One of my favorite podcasts

Great interviews, moves fast, and very factually based.

Interesting and informative

I enjoy the eclectic guests and the objective (though sometimes subjectively so) spiels. Keep 'em coming...

Funny, Wise and Informative

I’ve been listening for about 2 years, it’s a can’t miss for me. He is a master of thoughtful, creative and deliberate vocabulary, he never uses cringe-worthy, over-used trendy words like nothing-burger, for example, that seem to take over the rest of the news world. His curiosity and appreciation of debate shine through. He is always respectful to interviewees whether he agrees with them or not, well it sounds that way anyways. I enjoy the way his spiel sounds like he’s in his living-room venting to friends or loved ones. He’s funny and just seems like a reasonable human being.
