Pros/cons

Summary of advice: please try to curate viewpoints on all sides and feature content that is also focuses on technology and science as well as the social sciences.

To all of the negative reviewers that are talk the hosts voice- dudes y’all’s audacity is outstanding. It wouldn’t matter who the new host was, y’all would have had some complaint because it’s DIFFERENT than something that you come to love. They hired her as a host for this show for a reason. It’s not like the position was competitive.

My honest opinion

After Manoush became the host, I tried several times to pick up the latest episode, but not once can I finish the episode...Manoush cut off the guy talking about the hotel to talk about her feeling (her feeling that standing in the same room as Dr. King did years ago). I feel she has been trying very hard since hosting this podcast to deliver her feeling/opinion/idea to audience, but either her feeling is actually not authentic enough or did not make me feel what she felt and also her way of interacting with guests is somehow boring, she need to learn how to ask intriguing questions or questions audience actually care about.

I understand new host need time to adjust, that is why I tried listen to the latest episode once while to check if the quality of the show has improved, but after more than 6 months, I don’t think that is going to happen. It is a shame to see a good podcast go down this way, I used to listen this podcast when I drove long distance and it was always a good company.

Algorithmic inequities?

Folks, let’s stop being silly. Please...It’s still a quality podcast. 2 stars because it’s well produced, but lends a platform to people I’d rather not hear from.
