The best academic podcast!

This podcast has become an excellent addition to two of my classes. I even catch myself listening to old episodes during office hours.

I learn alot.

I just discovered this pod and just love it. Every episode focuses on a different area of research so I learn about alot of the nuances that surround various international terrorist threats, not just OH NO MUSLIMS!, the British perspective also lends a more circumspect lens. Excellent for those in the field, but also accessible to those who are intelligent & curious from other fields. Thank-you so.
