Best intro music EVER!

The golden age of podcasts in real time.

Without a doubt the hosts are two of the most scholarly polymaths with the most beautiful American English, they enunciate and delve their words and ideas so carefully and succinctly. Often Robert is better at putting forth a premise and Joe is better at explaining it.
I hope they read this.
Listening sometimes is like going home after being caught in life’s mental storm.
Their voices are so soothing and ideas so intriguing.
