Talking about what matters to us and why
Love the range of guests and Alice’s way of letting people talk about what they’re wrestling with and what brings them joy or pain, or both. It's rare to hear people think out loud with others and this is just that.
The podcasts I listen to tend to be either heavily science, heavily comedy or both (I’m a nearly 50-year old male American to get all that out there). Alice is a wonderful comedian (have you heard her on The Bugle? Go ahead, I’ll wait), but this podcast is more about conversation than humor, though there are plenty of laughs to be had. If you’re looking for a good place to start, may I suggest any of the Tiff Stevenson episodes? They should be mandatory listening! I’ve said enough. Now, go forth and enjoy!
Quiet, thoughtful discussion where nobody gets mad at each other. What bizarre alternate universe is this?
