Saved My Life…
This show really opens your mind and personally pushed my intellect towards a much better future. Guy and Manoush are great talent and can really pull you in for that hour to allow you, me personally to transcend past my ignorance. Great work and thank you all behind the scenes!
Bring back Guy Raz
This used to be my go to podcast for quite sometime but then for some reasons NPR opted to change the host. The new host isn’t engaging. Worst part is that the content is still impeccable but then it’s so boring that I have stopped listening
No longer a podcast about Technology, Design, and Entertainment. Ah well. Old episodes with Guy are still good.
