Hope in a podcast

I hear things on this podcast and I wonder if we could achieve some of these things in rural Colorado....teaching kids to write code, using data to solve our problems. Maybe then the kids wouldn’t feel that they had to move away to make a life. Thank you Pushkin!

Fluff

I have limited time to listen to good podcasts. When I see something new and interesting I put it through a harsh test: I look for a challenging episode to see how well they handle the topic. In this case I chose the episode on climate change. I thought, "Wow, they're going to "solve" climate change in a single thirty-minute episode?" Well, they didn't. In fact they didn't even try. All they talked about was offering a monetary prize to find solutions. How about that? Who would have guessed that solving climate change was as easy as offering a monetary prize for the best solution? The host of this podcast is Maeve Higgins, a comedian, and maybe that's a hint that this podcast isn't very serious. This podcast failed my audition so I won't be adding it to my list.

Usually good

In the main the topics are interesting and the ideas wonderful and deserving of our attention and support. The latest episode is an exception with Dr. Uruashi Sahni on educational inequality. She advocates a social indoctrination platform based on her views embedded in a classic education. It’s a disturbing viewpoint that the host doesn’t do enough to challenge. I hope they avoid this type of guest in the future.
